Career and Aspiration Week

This year as part of Career and Aspiration week the children had the opportunity to interview a range of visitors about their jobs including a meteorologist, a midwife and fire service. They also enjoyed watching a magic show by Wacky Woody a children’s magician and learned about working with animals by taking part in activities with Steven ‘the bug man’ from Wild Workshops.

Thank you to those parents that gave up their time to speak to the children and helped to make the week a success.

The river Nile – Jayden

  1. A few facts about the river Nile.
  2. The River Nile is about 6,670 km (4,160 miles) in length and is the longest river in Africa and in the world. Although it is generally associated with Egypt, only 22% of the Nile’s course runs through Egypt.

2. In Egypt, the River Nile creates a fertile green valley across the desert. It was by the banks of the river that one of the oldest civilizations in the world began. The ancient Egyptians lived and farmed along the Nile, using the soil to produce food for themselves and their animals.

Where is the  river Nile?

The River Nile is in Africa. It originates in Burundi, south of the equator, and flows northward through northeastern Africa, eventually flowing through Egypt and finally draining into the Mediterranean Sea.

Where is the source of the river Nile?

  1. The river Nile’s source starts at Lake Victoria, Africa’s biggest lake, is generally thought of as the source of the River Nile. On the northern edge of the lake, water pours over a waterfall, known as Ripon Falls, into a narrow opening which some people believe is the beginning of the River Nile.

NSPCC Digital safety workshop for parents

Dear Parents and Carers

We’re here to help you keep your child safe online

O2 and the NSPCC have joined forces on a mission to help all children and their families in the UK stay safe online. Together, they’re offering useful tools, support and guidance to help parents and carers have frequent conversations with their children about their online lives.

Our free online safety workshop for parents and carers

We would like to invite all parents, carers or family members to a free online safety workshop at Corrie Primary at 2.30pm on Monday 26th February 2018. The content covered in the workshops is aimed at adults. Parents with children are advised to arrange childcare if possible.

The hour-long workshop will help parents, carers and other adults understand their child’s online world, build confidence to have those important conversations that can help keep children safe online and help you know where to go for help and advice.

“After coming to this workshop today, I realise the importance of having conversations with my child rather than avoid the subject. I didn’t know there were things I could do to make it better, I’m so glad I came to this workshop. I will definitely be calling the helpline or going into store to get some help, thank you.” – Parent who attended the workshop

 

Our world war II interview with Jack by Jedaiah

Today (15/2/18) we were lucky enough to have an interview with a world war two veteran. He finished  school in 1938 at the age of 14. When war broke out he became a mail boy.  When he was 18 he joined the army and became an airplane communicator. He was in the South Africa 12 squadron and helped liberate Italy. He is thankful he was in the 12 squadron because his life was extended. 5 of his squadron members died in the war when a German plane dropped a bomb on their plane. He flew the American B26 Martin Marauder Medium Bomber. He described what it was like in the planes, he said that it was like being in a metal tube. Also the bomb was right in the middle and there were two metal bars to hold on to.  It was very special to speak to a world war II veteran and listen to his experience in the war.By Jedaiah.A

Our visit with a WW2 veteran – Jack by Libby

Today, year 6 met a WW2 veteran who fought for Britain when he was only 18 years old – Jack. He is  nearly 94 now and he still remembers it all very clearly even though it has been quite a long time since then. It was very interesting hearing from someone who was actually there at the time, I think it helped us all understand a bit more what it was actually like for him. It was great,so inspiring. I definitley will be doing some research about the people that f0ught in WW2. Thanks Jack!

Interview with Jack wwII by Talana

Today Jack came in school to see year 6 and was talking to us about him in world war 2 so first of all he was saying about the air planes. He went in one but he did not drive one so I asked him how long has he been doing it for in the war. He was 18 when he started .He has 2 children and a wife in his life. When he left he was doing some more jobs but they were not like the war. He had lots of things to show us- a kit for sewing, a bullet so they could keep one to remember the war if he wants to.  How do you feel about the war? He used to be a fighter pilot he does have some cool jobs but he might get hurt. He had some pictures that he showed us- they were pictures of what he was doing in the war, one was for when you finish the war. He is 93 now but this year he is 94. He knows a lot about the war. He told us lots of things. SOS was for to save someones life if they need help, he had this thing to polish your buttons. He was so kind to us because he told us a lot of things .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    by Talana

Jack-World War Two Veteran by Melody 6L

Today we met Jack, a WW2 veteran,and what he told us was very interesting.

He was very nice and his story was very interesting. When he was 14,he left school,he was then a painter\decorator. After that , he told us that he was a bike message sender so when the phone lines were down because of a bomb , Jack would send messages for people. Then he was an R.A.F pilot ,that was his job throughout the war. Jack said, “I have never flown a Spitfire but I did fly a B26 Martin Marauda.”

We asked Jack what was the worst part about being in the war and he said, “Being away from home is the worst part “

We also asked Jack what was the best part about his job and he told us that his favourite part was the crew that he worked with because they helped him get through the hardest times

I would like to say a huge thank you to Jack because if it wasn’t for him I probably wouldn’t be here now so….Thank you Jack:-)
