Children from across the school visited the City Serve office (our lunch time dinner suppliers) last week. They learnt all about the importance of healthy eating and found of the shocking truth about how much sugar there is in different cereals and drinks.
As you may have seen on the news, there is a new trend named the ‘Momo Challenge’ spreading across the internet and social media. It consists of a horrifying character which appears on YouTube, Fortnite, and many other platforms your children may be using to play games or watch videos.
The doll haunts children to add a contact on messaging service WhatsApp, then hounds them with violent images and dares. We are aware that MOMO requesting children to add a number into their phones is also used as a hacking technique, used to steal personal information.
Parents/Carers are encouraged to talk to their children about internet safety and monitor what content your children are accessing. It has been reported that Momo will appear midway through a streamed episode of Peppa Pig and other child friendly shows, games or videos. We advise you all to be vigilant.
A downloadable guide offering further guidance and advice on dealing with this matter, can be found on the ‘National Online Safety’ website: https://nationalonlinesafety.com/…guides/momo-online-safety-guide-for-parents
It is extremely important that you are all made aware of these online challenges, to help limit the chance of your children being targeted.
Thank you for your co-operation.
Over the summer break, we have had some work carried out in the playground. This has been to install some exercise equipment that the children can use to help keep themselves fit. We have also had artificial grass installed to ensure that the equipment can be used all year round. Have a look at the photographs below.
A big thank you to all of the families who donated gifts to the City Mission ToyLink Appeal. As you can see from the photograph below, we were able to take a really good selection of toys to be distributed at Christmas. Thank you to Mrs Heskey for organising this.
Below are the procedures for tomorrow, unless there is a significant change in the weather. Please continue to check the website for updates or alternatively sign up to follow this blog and receive email updates.
