Pizza Making #WerringtonSTEM28-02-2020 | 14:43:27 | No Comments

This morning, Mr Hubbard’s class had a wonderful time at Pizza Express where they participated in a pizza making session. During the visit, the children got the chance to:

• Learn some important cooking basics (including hygiene);

• Top their pizzas with passata (tomato) sauce and mozzarella;

• Take part in an ‘Ingredients Quiz’ where they didn’t just learn about different ingredients, they got to taste them too!

• Eat their pizzas back at school!

We would like to say a big thank you to Ella and the team who were all magnificent. The session was really well resourced and the staff were all very knowledgeable, friendly and welcoming!

Y6 #SaferInternetDay #WerringtonSTEM12-02-2020 | 17:51:46 | No Comments

In Y6, we have really enjoyed this week’s #SaferInternetDay work around the theme #freetobe

We have taken part in quizzes, watched videos, listened to poetry, had in-depth discussions and debates…and also created our very own avatars!

So let’s all work together to create an internet where we are….

  1. Free to be creative The internet is a great place to experiment with how to represent yourself. Whether that is using filters or emojis, or giving your avatar wings and green hair in a game, remember to have fun and use the internet to release your inner creativity!
  2. Free to be different The internet allows us to find more of the things we like or relate to, but it’s also a place where we can learn about people who are different to us. The internet can be a great place to express the things that make you special or unique. Let’s celebrate the fact that so many different people are using it!
  3. Free to feel safe Always keep your personal information safe online. There are lots of ways you can express yourself without giving this away. Remember that other people online may not always be who they appear to be, so be sure to check with an adult if you are ever unsure about what to share or who you are chatting to online.​
  4. Free to expect respect If someone is treating you or your friends unkindly online, or not respecting you for who you are, you can use the block and report buttons to take positive action to stop it, and make sure you tell someone too. Remember to support your friends, and show others how to be respectful and kind online.
  5. Free to ask for help If you are ever unsure about something you see online, or anything makes you feel worried, upset or confused then ask an adult that you trust for some help and advice.

The 11th of February is the United Nation’s International Day of Women and Girls in Science. In recognition of this, each year group has researched a female STEM pioneer. In Year 6, we have learned about the magnificent Katherine Johnson and her awesome achievements.
