Meet the Teacher
Thank you so much to those of you who attended Meet the Teacher. It was so lovely to see so many faces. We have attached the Powerpoint that was shown; if you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to contact us, either through the office, or our class email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Before we started our Topic, we worked as a year group to order key historical events and discussed the impact they have had.
Welcome to Year 6!
We are very excited to welcome to start our journey in Year 6! We hope you all had a fabulous summer and that you are excited to be back in school. Some days will be tough; however, we know that we will be able to preserve and have a great year. We will be sharing some of your amazing learning on here :)
E-Safety - When People’s Posts are Getting You Down
Being on social media can be fun, but looking at others' seemingly perfect pics and posts can leave you feeling a bit low. You might even feel like you are constantly comparing your online life to other people’s.
Here’s what Dr Aaron says...
When looking at other people’s pictures, it can be easy to think they’re all doing great, and you’re the only one that worries about how you look or feel. The thing is, everyone feels like that now and then – you just can’t tell that by only looking at their social media.
People tend to put their best selves forward and often hide all their other insecure parts. This can give the rest of us the impression that we’re the only ones who feel this way. It’s just not true!
It’s also super important to remember that social media platforms like Instagram are about image. Many famous people’s feeds are promotional. This means they get paid for making products look good. Photos can also be messed around with. People can be made slimmer, skin can seem smoother, and body parts can get bigger and smaller! So remember, often you could be comparing yourself to something impossible.
