Safer Internet Day was on February 7th - the theme this year being "Enjoy, Reach out, Speak out!". The digital leaders led an assembly in front of the whole school on staying safe online. There has also been a poster competition which the digital leaders will judge and announce the winners in Spring 2.

Eastburn hosts international visitors as part of its Erasmus project.
Eastburn plays host to international visitors
As part of a 4-year Erasmus+ funded programme, Eastburn Junior & Infant School hosted a visit from schools in Sweden, Greece and Slovenia.
In 2019 Eastburn Junior & Infant School joined forces with schools from Sweden, Greece and Slovenia, to work on an Erasmus project with the aim of supporting and developing teachers and students to become better digital citizens of the future. The project intends to develop computing and internet safety skills so that children, across all the schools, are confident that they can use IT effectively and navigate the World Wide Web responsibly.
During the week, the school organised a number of events for their international partners, creating opportunities for them to meet and work with the children at school and to develop computing skills. This included:
a coding workshop run by Tim Bleazard through the local computing Hub,
a virtual assembly on ‘Internet Legends’ held for visitors and children in year 5,
child-led tours and workshops on coding and animation,
and school-wide assemblies for the children to learn about the other schools and countries in the project.
Additionally, the visitors were able to experience the local area, including a visit to the museum in Skipton to see the Shakespeare folio, a visit to Skipton Castle and a trip to the Science and Media Museum to visit the galleries on computing and the internet. “It has been great to see how well the children have engaged with the visitors, particularly our digital leaders and their enthusiasm for computing,” Mrs McMeekin (the project leader) explained, “and we were proud to be able to show our visitors what we have to offer.”
