Following our very succusseful Anti-Bullying week, our school council have been working with classes across the school to help update our pupil version of our Anti-Bullying Policy. Have a look at the great work they have produced at this link:
Our friend Mike from the Welsh Birds of Prey Centre came to visit us again today. He gave a fascinating talk about the birds and finished by inviting some children to handle these amazing creatures. Mike always takes care to remind us of how the balance of nature around us can be so fragile and that we have an important role to play in caring for our environment. it was a truly inspiring and thought provoking visit. There are a few sample photos. If you click the link you can see a few more.
We are very proud that some pupils from Cabot took part in a National Maths Competition last week It was really tough – even Mrs Cartlidge couldn’t answer all the questions in time!
Pupils will receive Gold, Silver and Bronze certificates for this round and we will find out in the next couple of weeks whether the scores of any Cabot pupils were high enough to go through to the final round in February.
Well done Year 5 and 6 pupils and thank you Mrs Cartlidge for giving us the opportunity to take part.
On Monday 13th November we will be celebrating Odd Socks Day as part of Anti-Bullying Week. This is a national event supported by our good friend Andy Day who visited us a couple of years ago. Odd Socks Day is designed to be fun! It’s an opportunity for children to express themselves and appreciate individuality and uniqueness! We are inviting everyone, children and grown-ups, to come to school wearing odd socks for the day. The odder the better!
Below are some links to further information about Odd Socks Day and about how you can help tackle bullying.
Krimo and Bijou, our local neighbourhood PCSOs, came to deliver a very informative online safety presentation this morning. They gave some very useful advice about how to help your children stay safe online. A key message was making sue you have good open dialogue between yourselves and your children about their online activity. It is important that children know who they can tell if something they see online upsets them. You may have filters on your computers but they don’t prevent all risks. Krimo also gave some very good advice about how to check the online search history and why it might be a concern if it is regularly deleted. If you have any online concerns about online safety then please let us know in school. There is further guidance on our own online safety page at the link below.
Last week was our special DT learning week. This year’s theme was cooking and gave all children across the school the opportunity to use our excellent school kitchen resource. Many different dishes from across the world were cooked and eaten. I was lucky enough join in the feasting fun thanks to Year 5 and Year 6 children who shared their delicious Spring Rolls with me.
