Anti bullying Week

This week we have been reminding ourselves about what is bullying and who we can reach out. Our daily checking have included , Who can you reach out to ?, what kind words have been said to you his week? Who can help us in school?

We also took part in an anti bullying live lesson.

West Midlands Fire Service

Year 4 had a visit from Kings Norton Fire Service today.

First we watched a video showing a fire starting in a bedroom and we discussed how quickly it spreads until the room is engulfed in flames and smoke.

Then we talked about smoke, why it is so dangerous and we should all have working smoke alarms in our houses.

We then worked together to identify the recommended positioning of smoke alarms.

After than, we learnt all about being prepared for an emergency. It is really
important that families and people who live together have sorted out a
plan of action just in case there is a fire.

We then talked about making an emergency call correctly and efficiently and thought about the impact of a hoax call.

Finally, we learnt about the Stop, Drop and Roll procedure that could save someone from being seriously injured or killed.

Many of us also had a go at it!

Be Internet Brave

In PHSE we have been discussing how people may behave differently online including pretending to be someone they are not. The class were very active and several of us (Elias, Alex H, Alex S, Alex R, Jacob, Charlie, James, Olivia, Ryan, Anren,) shared their personal experiences. Discussions included:

  1. Racist or negative comments online.
  2. Strangers talking to you online.
  3. Video adverts and content inappropriate for year 4 children.

Finally we all agreed different ways to talk / deal about anything that is not right online. This included.

  1. Telling a trusted adult.
  2. Pressing the report button for videos.
  3. Blocking and ignoring strangers online.

    Just remember, When it doubt, Discuss with a trusted adult!
