At Great Missenden School, we encourage the use of technology as a means of supplementing and enhancing the learning and teaching experience. The children are presented with a wide range of opportunities and experiences to ensure they can successfully utilise their technological skills and knowledge in a variety of contexts. At Great Missenden School, the safety of the children is our priority. Online safety forms an ever increasing part of this.

Our students will experience well-designed practical activities in the technologies. We offer our students opportunities to develop:

  • curiosity and problem-solving skills, a capacity to work with others and take initiative
  • planning and organisational skills in a range of contexts
  • creativity and innovation, for example though computing and computer aided design and manufacturing approaches
  • skills in using tools, equipment, software and materials
  • skills in collaborating, leading and interacting with others
  • critical thinking through exploration and discovery within a range of learning contexts
  • discussion and debate
  • searching and retrieving information to inform thinking within diverse learning contexts
  • making connections between specialist skills developed within learning and skills for work
  • evaluating products, systems and services
  • presentation skills

E Safety Production- 'Click'- September 2018

 

Buckinghamshire commissioned school drama specialists AlterEgo Creative Solutions (creators of Chelsea’s Choice) to provide a play suitable for children in Year 6. The aim was to help them learn about online risk and healthy online behaviour and relationships. This show supported all of the online safety work that Year 6 have been doing during the Autumn term.

 

The play was designed to help prepare them for transition to secondary school. Our Year students saw the production, called ‘Click’, at the Elgiva Theatre on Thursday 20th September.

 

‘Click’ covered issues such as online safety, cyberbullying and good online communication. The Year 6 classes will be doing follow up work to ensure that children get the maximum benefit from the play and it will be an important part of our online safety curriculum.
