Form 3 visit to Alice Holt Forest School

By | All School News

The girls in Form 3 had a fantastic day out at the Alice Holt Forest School. They found and held a slow-worm (legless lizard), collected silver birch bark ‘paper’ for tinder, learnt to identify and ate beech nuts and wood sorrel. The main highlights for most of the girls were probably building a den, learning to use a flint to light a fire over which they toasted marshmallows and walking Harry, the four-legged companion of our team leader, Nigel.

It all made for a great start to the year!

‘Internet Legends’ Assembly Hosted by Google

Key Stage 2 children attended a very exciting ‘Internet Legends’ Assembly, which discussed phishing, being nice online, being brave, creating strong passwords and reporting unacceptable behaviour. The children had the chance to hold Collins the cat and learnt how quickly things can be spread across the Internet. The children enjoyed the interactive workshop and were a fantastic audience members. They made a pledge to be safer when Online!

The Google Team recommended ( with parental permission) that children go home and play the Interland game which reinforces the 5 key messages from the Assembly.
