Online Safety 

As we are all spending a little more time online, it is important to remember to stay safe. The children have already seen this video (in September), but it gives a very important message. This is Episode 3. When children have watched video, they should create a colourful online safety poster.  


Windmill Project 

 We will be adding a turbine onto our windmill on Wednesday. 

Make sure to add a hole onto your windmill body safely so the turbine can easily fit and spin. Get your materials together and begin creating your windmills to match your design adding colours or images onto them. Once you have created your turbine you will need to add an axel, this could be a straw, pencil or pipe cleaner, through the middle of your turbine. The next step will be to carefully push this turbine into your hole in the windmill to complete your design. 

Make sure to send us a picture of your designed windmill after you have finished.
