Slow Down For Bobby Assembly
Today we had a representative from the Bobby Colleran charity, who came into school talk to all the children about road safety. The children enjoyed listening to the story of SUPERBOB and learning the different rules about how to stay safe on the road. The children were very excited to see the SUPERBOB puppet and also the large cardboard cut out. It was a lovely assembly and also very informative for the children, raising awareness of the dangers when crossing the road. Each class now has their own copy of the book and have been talking about road safety in class.
Next Travel Plan Meeting
Our next Travel Plan meeting is on Wednesday 9th November at 2pm. Please let us know via the school office or your child's teacher if you are able to come along.
Walk To School Week
Walk to School Week is a national campaign held every October and May. During this week we encourage as many parents and pupils to walk to school each day.
We started our Walk to School Week on Monday 10th October. The children were each given their own Walk to School bookmark. For each day that they walked to school during this week, they received a Walk to School sticker to put on their bookmark. Each class added up how many children had walked on each day. At the end of the week all of the results were collected from each class. As a celebration the following week, we held a whole school 'Everybody Active Session'. The children and parents joined in with some fun dance moves on the playground. We also gave out the 'Golden Shoe Award' to the class who had the most walkers. Congratulations to the Robins class, who achieved the most walkers during that week.
Our year 2 children took part in a poster competition during our Walk to School Week. The aim of the poster was to encourage parents and children to Walk to school at least Once a Week. The children completed their designs in class and they were then judged by our School Council. Congratulations to our winner Seb Brown on his wonderful design. Seb's design was copied onto flyers and handed out at the school gate.
Thank you to the members of our Travel Plan Team and children who helped to give out flyers and help to promote Walking to School.
Let's make walking to school fun!
