TikToc

Despite only launching in 2018, TikTok has enjoyed a dramatic rise to become one of the most popular social media apps on the planet.

There’s a good chance your child is either using it already or asking to be allowed on it – but what exactly is it, and are there any risks you should be aware of? www.parentinfo.org have released a information for parents article with everything you need to be aware of: https://parentinfo.org/articles/games,-apps-and-tech/all

Maths Mystery

Our very talented Freida has enjoyed the recent maths mystery work so much, that she has written her own. It is a truly fantastic example of self motivation, challenge and determination.

A tree-t for you!

Rachel has been working hard at home and has created an impressive presentation on the computer, detailing lots of fascinating information about trees in the local area. I wonder how many you are able to name and how many you have you spotted on your recent walks? Amazing work, Rachel - well done!

Art Competition Winner

At the beginning of the year, Gloucester Diocese invited our family of church schools to take part in an RE and Art competition. Entries were welcomed that reflected the theme of ‘Spiritual Moments’ and could include work on any of the major world faiths. It could also link with the diocesan understanding of spirituality, reflecting those ‘golden glue’ moments when the ‘ows’, ‘wows’ and ‘nows’ of life crack through everyday normality.

Parents' guide to House Party

In the current environment, many of us are using different ways to try and keep in touch with our friends and family. One app that has risen in popularity is Houseparty, which gained the no.1 spot on the app store after becoming one of the most downloaded apps since social isolation was introduced. Billed as a ‘face to face social network’, the platform launched in 2016 but isn’t as widely known as Facebook, WhatsApp or Snapchat. That’s why the National Online Safety site have created this guide for parents and carers to help them understand exactly what Houseparty is all about.
