Reception - Vegetable soup

This week we have been reading the story "Oliver's vegetables"
We made vegetable soup.
First we chopped the vegetables carefully.
Then we put them into the soup maker with some water.
The soup maker took 21 minutes.
Next we let the soup cool down.
Finally we tasted it. Delicious!

TikTok guide for Parents & Carers

Wednesday, 10 October 2018

As part of NationOnlineSafety.com's #WakeUpWednesday campaign, they have created a free updated TikTok (formerly Musical.ly) guide for parents & carers to share with the whole school community!

TikTok is a global video community where users create, share and discover ‘funny and memorable moments’ via short video clips – typically about 15 seconds long. Currently one of the world’s most popular apps, TikTok was formerly known as Musical.ly, before it was rebranded by the Chinese company that acquired it in November 2017. This free guide for parents & carers covers what they need to know about the platform to help safeguard their children from potential online risks including; dangerous trends & challenges, oversharing, online payments, inappropriate content and more.  https://t.co/9Io6W9BA8y
