Safer Internet Week

We have been thinking about how to be a good online citizen this week at both Crownfield Junior School and Mawney Foundation.

To commemorate it being National Safer Internet Day both school have sent ambassadors to each other's schools to present an assembly.  

Here are some photographs.  

The Mawney have said:
"I like that they asked us questions"
"I know that there are lots of things we can do like go to the park or Kidspace, instead of playing on my phone."
"I know it is not good for me to look at my tablet before I go to bed."
"Their presentation was really professional looking!"
"I know how to stay safe online, whether that's on my phone, tablet or a computer."
"Bullying includes online, which is called cyber-bullying."

'Going to Mawney was amazing, I think they really enjoyed our PowerPoint.  We were planning it for weeks and we put a lot of work into our presentation.' - George W, 5P

'I enjoyed doing the presentation, I think the children at Mawney enjoyed it too as they were very enthusiastic when we asked them questions.  We learnt a lot about how to make a safer internet as much as they did!' - Hanif, 6T

We have been tackling issues such as cyber-bullying, our digital footprint, how our social media influences our self-esteem and whether we are spending too much time online.

Crownfield students have said:
'On Tuesday 11th February, some children from Mawney Foundation School came to visit.  They told us about Internet Safety.  They also told us the age ratings for certain apps and games and some of them really surprised us!' - George B, 5N

'I really enjoyed Safer Internet Week because we had real life examples of how people hate on other people and how people feel the need to wear make-up or use Photoshop.  It was really interesting and I would love to do it again!' - Mollie S, 5N

Year 5 visit from Havering Museum

On the 2nd December 2019, Mr Lynch came in to tell us about the history of our local area.  We found out that our school got its name because it probably used to be a field owned by the crown, AKA the Queen.'
- George B, 5N

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend our exhibition, showcasing our Year 5 topic homework on our local area!

Miles the Mole

The children learnt about how traffic can affect the communities we live in.

'I learned that cars, especially cars that are stationary, make the most pollution if the engine is running.  Other forms of pollution include factories and aeroplanes.  We helped Miles the Mole get all of the pollution out so we could have fresh oxygen in our workshop.  I enjoyed learning about pollution and how we can stop it.'
- Maddie, 6TA

'Miles the Mole is a scientist and his friends helped us learn about pollution and how it gets worse.  It was fun learning about pollution because it was taught in a fun way.'
- Marie, 6E

'The workshop was very informative, it told us all about the air pollution and how it can affect the world we live in.  We are here to reduce the pollution.'
- Hanif, Year 6
