We had great fun dressing as book characters. Mr Hope dressed as Wilma Flintstone - not sure that is a famous book character book we'll give him the benefit of the doubt because he was wearing a dress.

Safer Internet Day 2016

Date: 22nd Feb 2016 @ 5:45pm

This year in 5Ho, for Safer Internet we looked at how to ensure we stayed safe online and how to deal with cyber bullying.  

After completing our Survey Monkey earlier this term, we analysed the results and used these to improve our understanding. We found our that as well as making sure we only use nicknames online to protect our identify, that we should make sure we only share these with our parents if we are online gaming or blogging. When communicating online, if we share our nickname identify, this should only be with people we know I  real life - our friends. 

We know that cyber bullying is an increasing problem as people use social media more and more and therefore designed steps that we should take to ensure that we don't become a victim and what to do if we do become a victim. The most important rule we came up with was TELL SOMEONE as cyber bullying happens in a place where no one else can see unless you tell them.

Cooking @ Tytherington

Date: 21st Feb 2016 @ 7:56pm

We had a fantastic time cooking at Tytherington School. For homework, we had created a valentines recipe - we used this to cook our very own valentines meal.

In addition, we completed some English work, artwork and took a tour of the school. We would like to thank Tytherington School for this opportunity.
