Road Safety week, by Miss Gough-Hughes
Date: 24th Nov 2017 @ 4:23pm
Road Safety week
As a school, we have been promoting road safety week and the importance of children using the roads safely. We have discussed how we cross the roads safely, using the different types of crossings and discussed how it is important to stop, look and listen when we cross the road. Children also looked at how they could stay safe if they were using equipment such as a scooter near to the road and how they could stay safe in moving vehicles e.g. always wearing their seatbelt and encouraging others to do the same. Children took part in a little in school competition where they drew their own version of the red and/or green man. Some of the children's examples have been uploaded. It would be useful if children could continue this discussion of how they can be safe on or near roads at home and even design their own green/red man again, if they would like to.
Anti-Bullying week, by Miss Gough-Hughes
Date: 24th Nov 2017 @ 4:11pm
This week, the children have been thinking about what the word bullying means. Children have been talking about our school rules and how they keep us safe and try to ensure that we do not hurt or upset other people's feelings or that other people do not hurt or upset us. Children have discussed what they think would be bullying and how they could instead show kindness to their friends and family at all times. Children have also been encouraged to think about how they could help their friends if they thought their friends were being bullied in school. This week, to raise awareness for anti-bullying week, all year 1 children have created their own anti-bullying poster. We will to continue to spread awareness for anti-bullying and remind children to be kind to their friends and family. .

We have been very lucky this week to welcome author, and model maker, Daisy Dawes into our school. She read her story book 'Get Ahead Fred' and brought along her fabulous models of the characters. In year 1 the children had a great time making crowns and year 2 created their own Fred models. Daisy was very inspirational and has promised to come back in the spring when her new book comes out. More phootgraphs of the day will be added to the year 1 and 2 pages.
