Lower School Reminders

Action in Lower School

Action is an integral part of the Year 6 Exhibition and all the children are looking at how they can be change agents in their particular areas of interest. One of our students, Oliver is passionate about saving endangered species and with this in mind has set himself the challenge of adopting a Mountain Gorilla for a year through the charity WWF. To raise the money needed for the adoption Oliver is running Dodgeball games during Golden Time with a small donation required. He will be running the games on Friday, 8th February from 2.45pm - 3.15pm and will be charging £1 per game. All are invited to join! Please support him with his action to save this very precious species. 

 

Eco-Rangers

Our Eco-rangers are in need of some resources to build a Bug Hotel in our school. A Bug hotel is a place where any bugs can stay. We need: strips of wood, straw, moss, dry leaves,  wood chips, old terracotta pots, old roofing tiles, bricks (preferably those with holes through them), old logs, bark, pine cones, sand, soil, hollow bamboo canes, dead hollow stems cut from shrubs and herbaceous plants, a sheet of roofing felt, planks of wood and any other natural materials you can find! You can put the resources inside a box which is below the Eco board.

 

The Eco-rangers would like to ask if any parents could volunteer to come and help build the bug hotel on Wednesday, 6th February at 12:00pm. Please contact gweber@dwightlondon.org if you can.

 

Safer Internet Day

Next week in the Lower School it is our Safer Internet week and the students will be having lots of reminders and activities about being responsible ICT users. Safer Internet Day is officially on Tuesday, 5th February. We recommend their website here which gives advice to students, teachers and parents about using ICT safely and effectively.
