Year 5 have tackled the issues surrounding keeping online social media profiles private by discussing what information in relevant and suitable for everyone to see. We discusses the idea first then created a character and gave them an identity. We then talked about which of the details were suitable for public viewing and which details should stay private. After this the children created a poster highlighting what we had surmised. The children were so engaged, they have designed lots more!

Year 5 had a visitor this week: Mr Robinson, a secondary science teacher from Barnsley Academy who had a primary placement as part of his teaching course. Being an avid sound enthusiast, Mr Robinson taught a brilliant, fun lesson on how we hear and then enabled the children to learn from a practical investigation. The children had to make a walkie-talkie from cups and string then test these out. After they had done this,  the children wrote a short explanation, drew then annotated a diagram about what they had done.
