Since September, we have appointed two Year 6 children as our Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSO's). They have successfully kept records and have been responsible for the collection of data on how children have walked, cycled and scooted to school. Each month the class with the most children walking, scooting or cycling to school have received an extra playtime.
The September winners of the Walk to School award were Class 4 & the October winners were Class R - well done to both classes! You will be given an extra playtime for your efforts.
During the month of September we supported the 'Safe Steps to School' campaign by wearing our favourite slippers to promote getting to school in a safe manner.
We are hoping to continue our 'Footsteps' (pedestrian training) with the current Year 1's in the near future so that they will be aware of: safe places to cross a road, being aware of when you must stop, look & listen by a roadside, have a better understanding of how quickly traffic is travelling plus preparing for a safe crossing.
