Goldworthy Class~ Safer Internet Day

This afternoon, Goldworthy Class thought about how to be safe on the Internet. We looked at different persuasive devices used on games and on the Internet and then discussed what they were and the effect of them; giving examples of each of them.

Sports Festival at Atlantic Academy

Goldworthy Class went to Atlantic Academy this morning to take part in Sports Festival ran by the youth sport leaders there. We thank them and Mr Davies for organising this great event. Everyone enjoyed it and we loved meeting up with the children from the other schools.
