Safer Internet Day 2019
Today at Queens we completed our Safer Internet Day, it was all about consent and permission. The children learnt about what permission is and who can give it. Why organisations and friends should ask for permission. Along with how to say no if you feel uncomfortable about giving your permission.
Each year group looked at a different aspect of consent. Year 3 looked at different scenarios and what they should do in those scenarios. Year 4 looked at game PEGI ratings to understand where they should gain consent when buying new games. Year 5 designed their own social media app and what consent they needed to run their social media app. Year 6 took part in some drama and acted out different scenes and then re-acted it out with what they should have done.
Oh no it isn't!
Oh yes it is!
Yes you guessed it, it's Pantomime Day at Queens CofE Academy. Today all the children were treated to a performance from Chaplins Theatre Productions. The children throughly enjoyed Cinderella and loved getting involved in the show.
We we would like to thank everyone at Chaplins for providing such an amazing performance. All of the children had the most amazing time and it provided them with the perfect end to the Autumn term.
From here at Queens we wish you a Merry Chritmas and a Happy New Year!
Remembrance Day Service
On Friday 9th November, we held our school Remembrance Day service. Father Tom led our service and we invited the relatives of ex-pupils who appear on our school memorial board to honour them. Each year group created their own Remembrance Day art including poppies, war scene silhouettes and skylines. Our Collective Worship team showcased these pieces of art during the event to the rest of the school. This was a special time to remember the soldiers who fought and all those involved. Thank you to all those attended.
Queens would like to say a massive thank you to Balfour Beatty who have volunteered their time to clear our school field and cut down overgrown trees and shrubs.
