Warning Frog- The App

By Community, Mental Health, Online safety, PSHE, Safeguarding

South Yorkshire Police and Social Care have received concerning information regarding a new social media App called ‘Frog’.  The App is aimed at a Primary aged audience and has recently exploded in popularity.  Police have significant concerns as the App is primarily targeted at primary aged children.  The App has very limited identity verification requirements.

Specialist Police partners have seen significant information suggesting there is a legitimate risk to Primary aged children being groomed.

Year 5 have a Norse Visitor

By History, Year 5

Today, Year 5 were lucky enough to have a Norse visitor who shared his knowledge of the Anglo Saxons and the Vikings who raided, traded and settled in Britain from AD 786.

We thought about the role of archeology and studied artefacts. We looked at them closely and tried to decide what they were made of and how they would have been used.

We looked at runes and used them to make a leather key ring.

We tried on clothes and helmets and held swords.

Vikings often traded in people.  Enslaved humans were very important to the Vikings. They were enslaved for life and were worth about as much as a cow.

By Computing

Lots of our children at St. Alban’s consider themselves gamers. But to a lot of parents, it is esoteric knowledge. This simple guide offers some brilliant tips should parents require them. 

Thank you!

By PTA

Thank you for your support this term with your wonderful baking, donations, buying tickets, attending events or just sending your children with some pocket money to spend.

 

A big thank you to the parents that have helped the PTA with our different events/projects.

 

The children have had lots of fun.

 

We will have a meeting with Mrs Gurner in the New Year to see what is needed for the children with the money raised so far.

 

Look out for our Auction Evening in the New Year with our fabulous Auctioneer – Mr Thompson! I’m sure it will be entertaining.

 

We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!
