Dear Parents & Guardians  This school year our classes will be using Seesaw (http://seesaw.me), a secure online journal where students can document and reflect on what they are learning in class. Your child will be able to add the things we work on (including photos, videos, worksheets, drawings and voice recordings) to their Seesaw journal and we can share them privately with you and other family members to view and comment on throughout the school year.  In order for your child to use Seesaw, the app needs your child’s name in order to be able to associate work like their photos, videos or voice recordings with their account. Seesaw only uses this information to provide the service and doesn’t advertise in Seesaw, create profiles of students, or share or sell your child’s personal information or journal content.  You can read more about their strong privacy promises here: https://web.seesaw.me/privacy.  Under an EU law called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), in order for your child to use Seesaw, the school must get your consent. For more information on GDPR, please visit https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/reform/rights-citizens.   I hope that your child will enjoy using Seesaw to document and share their learning this year.

BOM Agreed Report  March 2021 A letter from the Parish regarding the  Sacrament of Confirmation STEPS Engineers Week aims to create awareness amongst young people about the exciting world of engineering. Ms. Ward's 4th class tried out a variety of interesting experiments throughout Engineers Week. They had lots of fun designing parachutes, flood barriers, marble mazes and rollercoasters!  Due to their fantastic effort, they were selected as winners of STEPS Engineers Week and won a very exciting prize for the entire school!   We are all VERY proud of all the students in Room 5.    Jake Dobbs was chosen as the overall winner and so he also won an individual prize. Well done Jake!  Click here to take a look at a sample of the experiments that were carried out by some of the students. Amazing work!
