Safer Internet Day
Although we believe that every day is a safer internet day at Seaburn Dene, we will be doing extra work with children as to how to keep themselves safe, including assemblies. The materials we will be using will be mainly taken from The Safer Internet Day website and the NSPCC.
It's hard for us all to keep up with the changes in technology and the new forums and games children use so I would recommend that parents take a little time during half term to look at the materials for parents and carers. Here is the link: https://www.saferinternet.org.uk/safer-internet-day/2018/sid2018-education-packs/education-pack-parents-and-carers There are lovely conversation starters to talk about safety, respect and well being online so it's a very positive approach to your discussions.
Inter-House Times Tables Challenge
It's here at last-our very first times tables challenge with children representing their houses for a brand new house cup. Mr. Smith will be leading proceedings on Thursday and we know the nominated children have been studying hard to get their hands on the buzzers first. It's the (X) Times Factor!
Congratulations to our Football Team
Our team played three matches on Friday, winning all three comfortably. Scores were 6-0, 4-0 and 3-0. The next step is for our team to play all the winners in the finalists' tournament on Wednesday so good luck and we'll keep our readers informed.
Wear Red Day
The Friends of the School have organised a wear red for £1 day for Friday to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. That should be a very easy colour in Sunderland!
Former pupil stars in University Challenge: If you ever wondered what happens to our pupils as they move through secondary school and into university, here's the story of a former pupil who's representing Newcastle University in University Challenge. Congratulations to Adam and good luck!
Half term-Unbelievably, we're heading to the half term holiday (12th-16th February). During that week many of you'll be celebrating Shrove Tuesday with delicious pancakes, Great Shiva Night (also on Tuesday) and Chinese New Year on Friday, welcoming the Year of the Dog. We wish you a happy holiday and hope you take the time to enjoy your families and festivities.
