Year 6

Greetings families,

COVID-19 has presented a very tricky time for everyone and you have all been rewarded with a 'Child Friendly Leeds' certificate for all of your efforts during this period.  A big thumbs up to you all!  Unfortunately, we haven't been able to end our school year in the usual way but it has been wonderful to keep in touch with you all.  You will be able to continue using the class blog on Purple mash if you wish, during the summer break (Full instructions for how to blog are here). 

I hope you all continue to follow the guidance to keep safe and well during the holidays, whilst enjoying time with friends and family.  

Take Care and stay safe,

Miss Fletcher

Online Safety

Leeds Prevent: Online Safety Information for Parents

'With many of our children currently off school and staying home due to COVID 19 the potential for online exploitation will be at its highest.
Although rare, there is a risk that with increased online activity, feelings of stress and isolation may be exploited. An understanding of digital safety will help parents and carers safeguard loved ones from a range of harms, whether that’s child sexual exploitation, fraud, or extremist influences seeking to radicalise vulnerable people.'
