NATIONAL ONLINE SAFETY – SQUID GAME

Netflix’s Squid Game is set to become the streaming service’s most successful show of all time, with huge numbers of viewers taking to social media to discuss each new episode. The South Korean thriller features some scenes of fairly brutal violence and is rated 15 by the BBFC. It follows a group of adults who compete to win innocent-looking playground games, but who are killed if they do not succeed at the tasks. An unexpected success in terms of viewing figures, Squid Game’s popularity is beginning to spread across various online platforms. There has been a slew of content created – ranging from memes to apps – that convey the violence of the show, so it is important for parents, carers and educators to understand the basis of Squid Game and the potential risks to young people who might be exposed to it. https://nationalonlinesafety.com/wakeupwednesday/squid-game-trending-across-platforms-what-parents-need-to-know?fbclid=IwAR3pamgasJuLeu8FlyOyg4s-Cl4g73J7hlUu_NUxKc5XSHuB90HEpGsYbSI

PARENTING SMART (PLACE2BE)

The children’s mental health charity, Place2Be, has launched a new website aimed at helping parents with typical situations they can find themselves in with their children. Advice can be found on over forty topics including:

  • Understanding sibling rivalry
  • My child is lying, what does it mean, what should I do?
  • My child has trouble going to sleep
  • My child says ‘I hate you!’
  • Cultural identity: who am I?

The Parenting Smart website can found here: https://parentingsmart.place2be.org.uk/

COVID
As you will be aware track and trace of positive cases is now done by Public Health England. We have had positive COVID cases in all year groups and strongly advise you to keep a regular routine for LFT testing alerting [email protected] or [email protected] if you have a positive result and to go for a confirmatory PCR test.

In our drive to broaden our vocabulary, please find our new T2 Workable Word of the week – ‘DISTINGUISH’ – to notice or understand the difference between two things, or to make one person or thing seem different from one another…recognise or treat (someone) as different. Manage to discern (something barely perceptible). It is a verb.

Here are some ways you could use the word:

“The team really distinguished themselves in their last match, coming from 3-0 down at half-time.”

“We must distinguish between hard work and being lucky.”

“Footballers are often criticised for their silly behaviour, or their wealth. But this man has really distinguished himself from the rest.”

The word ‘distinguish’ is from a 400 year-old French word ‘distinguer’ – this means to ‘put out’.

Academic Year 9 Virtual Tutor Parents’ Evening

2021-10-13T16:33:29+01:00

Dear Parents/Carers

Academic Year 9 Virtual Tutor Parents’ Evening – Thursday 21st October 2021 4.00pm – 6.00pm

I would like to invite you to the Year 9 Virtual Tutor Parents’ Evening on Thursday 21st October 2021. The evening will take place on our Parents Evening booking system, SchoolCloud.

This is a valuable opportunity for Parents and Tutors to discuss how your child has settled in to their first few weeks and to raise any issues or concerns you may have. Tutors will comment on your child’s attendance and punctuality, behaviour and attitude to learning. We hope that you will be given a further opportunity to meet or speak with your child’s subject teachers, later in the year, in order to discuss academic progress.

Our online Parents’ Evening Booking system will go live on Thursday 14th October, so we ask that you log on and book a 5-minute telephone appointment with your son’s/daughter’s Form Tutor. Details of how to do this are included below.

Yours sincerely

Mr D Case

Head of Year 9

You will be aware that the government is rolling out vaccines to 12–16-year-olds. We await further details, but these will be arranged and administered by the NHS and students will receive them at school. Please find attached an information leaflet on what to expect. We will write to you when we have further details of the rollout.

COVID

We have had positive COVID cases in all year groups and strongly advise you to keep a regular routine for LFT testing alerting [email protected] or [email protected] if you have a positive result and to go for a confirmatory PCR test.

In our drive to broaden our vocabulary, please find our new T2 Workable Word of the week – ‘CLASSIFY’ – to arrange (a group of people or things) in classes or categories according to shared qualities or characteristics. Assign to a particular class or category. To designate (documents or information) as officially secret. It is a verb.

Here are some ways you could use the word:

“Mountain peaks are classified according to their shape.”

“Biologists classify animals and plants into different groups.”

Dig Deeper…

This news may reflect a widening gap between language that is accepted by examiners and that used day-to-day by pupils in some areas of the UK. Examiners have noted pupils nationwide using “unnecessarily rude vocabulary” in weaker answers.

A 2019 survey of 2,100 tutors found that “slanglish” was the most common reason for English GCSE failures.

Yet, as a subject of study, “code-switching/style-shifting, youth slang … and use of accent and dialect” is increasingly of interest to English language A-level students.

Some of the phrases prohibited in formal learning at Ark All Saints have been widely used in books and music. “He cut his eyes at me” is a phrase that has been used by the popular teen novelist Lily Anderson. “Oh my days” appears in lyrics by Stormzy, and even inspired a line in T-shirts after the footballer Jeremie Frimpong, declared “oh my days, best game ever” in a post-match TV interview after winning a trophy for Celtic against Rangers.

In our drive to broaden our vocabulary, please find our new T2 Workable Word of the week – ‘INCORPORATE’ –When you incorporate something, you are bringing people or items together. You are making them complete. It is a verb, an action word.

Here are some ways you could use the word:

“Incorporate the dough and the tomato sauce and the cheese together and what have you got? Pizza!”

“That new football player has incorporated herself into the football team brilliantly.”

“I will incorporate your ideas into our plan for the new house.”

Dig Deeper…

The word ‘incorporate’ started to be more widely used in English about 700 years ago, where it was used in cooks about medicine. It comes from the Latin word ‘incorporates’ which has two part – ‘in’ which means into or on and ‘corpus’ which means the body. The word was used to describe companies that legally combined from the 15th century onwards. When a company has the letters inc. after its name, that is still shorthand fro==or the word ‘incorporated’ 600+ years later.
