In PSHE recently Year 6 have been exploring online fraud. Over a series of two lessons the children looked at different types of online fraud, decided whether scenarios were likely to be online fraud and even had a go at sporting some fake emails and websites! The children were all very good at this and definitely know what to look out for!
During Anti-Bullying week Year 6 took part in lots of different check-ins and activities. We discussed who we could go to for support if we felt bullying was taking place, what kind words had been said to us during the week and more!
We also took part in a special anti-bullying live lesson and a Children in Need mood booster! This was a great way to end such an important week.
In PSHE this week we have been looking at different types of relationships.
The children started by discussing what relationships a person would have at different stages of their life in small groups.
The children then looked at three different relationship stories and considered how the people would need to behave in order to keep their relationship happy and healthy.
Mrs Johnson taught the children a breathing exercise this week as it is Children’s Mental Health Week. The activity was called handprint breathing and is for the children to use when they are feeling anxious, angry, nervous or at any other times they feel they need to! It consists of tracing up and down your fingers using your other hand. When you trace up a finger, you breathe in. When you trace back down, you breathe out. You keep going until you have traced all five of your fingers.
In computing, Year 6 completed their online safety lesson for this term. The lesson was all about copyright and ownership. The children started off watching a video where they were given different scenarios and they had to discuss whether the actions of people were right or wrong. Miss Edwards then demonstrated how to use Google to make an advanced search where you can specify that you only want results which are free to use and share. The final activity for the children to do was then to decide whether a series of statements about online content was true or false.
In PSHE Year 6 have been learning about legal and illegal drugs and the effects and risks involved when people use them. The children worked in tables to focus on one drug in particular and try to figure out what effects and risks their drug would have. They then read an information sheet to further their understanding and shared back to the rest of the class
