I-Vengers are GO!

Buxworth Primary School has joined a county-wide online safeguarding initiative called I-Vengers. This involves children from across the school, led by I-Vengers from Year 5 and Year 6, becoming ambassadors for internet safety.


The I-Vengers have been set a challenge for this term to gather as many parent online safety surveys as possible. The I-Vengers need YOU to help them complete this task!


Please follow this link to complete a two minute survey about online safety: I-VENGERS PARENT SURVERY


We really do need as many responses as possible so your help is, as always, much appreciated.

We're Going On Safari... 

Well hello Sycamore class!

It is so lovely to see your smiling faces back in the classroom and wow... haven't we started it with excitement! For any parents that haven't been told about it at home, we started out new topic 'On Safai' by going on a real life, live safari in South Africa. We logged into Wild Earth TV and let them take us on an wildlife adventure in the African bush. Our class, along with Hawthorn class emailed our questions in to the experienced game rangers and they answered them live - it was so exciting to see African animals in their natural environment -we even saw the incredibly endangered African Painted wolf or Wild dog as it is sometimes called. 


I'm looking forward to taking you all on more adventures throughout the topic...stay tuned for more fun... 


If you'd like to do some research at home about some of the Animals you find in the African countries, I'd love to see it (and any fabulous pictures that you draw). You can email your creations to school.
