On Thursday, Owls and Eagles were visited by Police Officer Nicki Dannatt. During age appropriate sessions, PC Dannatt spoke to both classes about how to avoid online dangers. Her message was clear and centred around 4 top tips.
PC Dannatt directed the children to the website www.thinkuknow.co.uk for more information, games and videos on the Esafety theme.
The Eagles undertook their first Problem Solving session on Tuesday. They looked at the faces on cubes and tried to identify a pattern depending on how the cubes were stacked and how many cubes there were. There was a lot of discussion going on! It was great to see such good teamwork between the pairs. We will be having a Problem Solving session every Monday.
On Monday December 1st Eagles went to the British Museum as part of their topic on Ancient Egypt. We spent the morning looking at the Egyptian galleries, the highlight of which was the Rosetta Stone. We also saw lots of mummies, false tomb walls and shabti. After lunch we looked at other galleries in the museum. Mrs Holt’s group’s favourite was the Money gallery, where we saw a 20 billion dollar note from Zimbabwe and learned that many of the pound coins in circulation are fake.
