Today (11th February) is Safer Internet Day. Crook Primary has joined forces with other schools across the globe to work "Together for a better internet". Our E-Cadets, pictured, led a fantastic assembly introducing the rest of the school to the aims of Safer Internet Day. They explained how the internet is used by most people in our community daily, and how to stay safe while online. They also introduced the idea of an 'online identity' and encouraged the rest of the school to explore what this means. Thank you for your hard work E-Cadets!
In our new topic, "Electrifying!", Year 6 have been learning how to interpret and draw circuit diagrams using universal symbols. They then had to become electricians to identify and fix problems within electrical circuits.
Today, 6O were specially selected to visit Parkside Academy for a basketball training session with Durham Wildcats Basketball Women's team.
The children's behaviour was exemplary and they really impressed the team with their skills. It was a fantastic opportunity for them to learn and be inspired.
To start off the half term, Year 6 have been exploring the effect that different food groups have on our bodies, and what constitutes a healthy, balanced diet. They then looked at seasonal food and the benefits that eating it has for our environment.
Year 6 used different preparation and cooking techniques to make a delicious savoury dish - corned beef hash!
As you can see by the photographs, the children loved the experience from start to finish. Some even had second helpings! ¡Buen provecho!
