This week the whole school took part in internet safety day and to highlight the importance of internet safety, RB2 took part in and created a play centred around the safe and unsafe use of the internet.
The theme of the play was performed in the style of the 90’s tv show This Is Your Life. Oliver played the host of the show who took us on a journey on Sam’s (played by Oscar) history of using the internet while Nathan played different characters from his past.
Some of the very important issues raised in the play included online gaming and online chat sessions. It is interesting to note how some children use the internet without fully understanding the perils and dangers that could lie within. That is why days like this are a strong reminder of the positive things we can do to make children and parents aware of safer internet use at home and at school.
Last December, the school had an enquiry day and the theme was human rights. As part of a group, the children decided we should do a Christmas cafe after the success of our summer cafe. The children wanted to give all the proceeds to charity and it was decided that the chosen charity would be Refugee Action. Oscar was very confident and phoned the charity in London to request their details.
Fast forward a few weeks later and we were well into the final preparations for the Base Christmas Cafe 2016.
Hot chocolate was being mixed…
Cakes, wreaths and decorations were being made…
And we were ready for business!
Everybody had a wonderful time and all of our visitors were extremely impressed with all the hard work and effort put in by all of the children.
Once the cafe was finished we counted up all the money and managed to raise a total of £103.78. The children were really pleased that all their hard work paid and off and were able to raise money for such a worthwhile cause.
Last week the school received a letter from refugee action.
So a big thank you to all the children in the base because without their work we wouldn’t have had such an amazing event and thank you to all the mainstream children and staff who showed up and donated.
