Every child in Class Two entered the BBC Radio 2 ‘500 Words’ competition this year. The children wrote with passion and enthusiasm, many writing reams. They then had the task of editing their journey stories to meet the 500 word limit. No mean feat!
Well done, Class Two!

Our ‘Digital Champions’ have been appointed. We now have experts in school to turn to if we are stuck or need advice.
Tuesday 7th February was Safer Internet Day 2017. The children of Franksbridge School revisited key safety messages in assembly and during lessons. They learnt about how to behave online as digital citizens. The key messages were:
Be the change
Play your part in making the internet a better place. Be positive and show respect. Treat others as you would like to be treated, whether online or face-to-face.
Always tell a trusted adult if you are ever worried or upset by something that happens online. They are always there for you to ask for help if you are unsure about anything you see online.
Keep your personal information safe and check with an adult before you share anything online. Personal information includes your email address, phone number, home address and password.
Make sure you know the rules about how to behave and stay safe on the sites, games and apps you use. Look out for buttons that let you block, mute and report other users who aren’t behaving.
Be a detective
The internet is full of brilliant things to watch, explore and learn from but not everything or everyone online can be trusted. Think carefully by checking at least three different websites for your information and talking to someone about what you have seen to see if they agree.
Never agree to meet up offline with someone you only know online. No matter how friendly they might seem or how well you think you know them, they are still a stranger. Always tell a trusted adult if someone online asks to meet up.
