  • Stay Safe Online

    Published 30/04/20

    Dear All

    During Folvilles closure due to the pandemic your children will probably be using technology a lot more. I would like to remind you that apps such as Tik Tok, Snapchat, Facebook, Whats app and Instagram all need to monitored regularly to ensure that you know who your child/children are communicating with. Games such as Roblox, Fortnite and minecraft also need monitoring as not all users are children.

    You can find step by step guides on how to make accounts private on the school website.

    If you are worried or need help with online safety you can contact me at

    Stay home, stay safe

    We were invited to take a group of children to spend the day at the Space Centre, thanks to our association with De Montfort University. The RAF sponsored a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Day and we had lots of exciting experiences building rockets, watching explosions and learning about life in space. We spent all day with Colin, a young  pilot,  who told us all about life in the RAF. Everyone had a great time and hopefully we have inspired some future scientists and engineers.

    Iron Man Construction Afternoon

    On Wednesday 1st May, Year 4 pupils and their parents/ careers constructed some almighty and very impressive Iron Men which Year 4 have been reading as their class book.  Prior to the afternoon children have created and elaborately performed their own Iron Man poems using the poet  Michael Rosen as in inspiration for their performance poetry. The designs involved plenty of cardboard boxes, foil and many other materials to help construct and decorate the Iron Man. As part of their design they used their knowledge of the Iron Man so many of the Iron men only had one ear as this was lost following a terrible fall early in the story. Well done and thank you to all the parents that were involved. We even managed to fill the stage in the hall with Iron Men, quite a sight to behold!
