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.
So far this year, we have supported 'Big Pedal' 2019, which took place 25th March - 5th April. This campaign was encouraging everyone to become more active by walking, scooting or cycling to school.
Class 1 participated in 'Pedestrian Training on Friday 5th April. They have been taught about: crossing roads in a safe place, people who help them in the community, understanding the different lights on a vehicle, using traffic lights when crossing busy roads. They even got to visit Waddesdon police station and tried out different police hats and heard the sirens blaring. Thank you to the Footsteps Team.
During the week commencing: Monday 20th May, it is 'Walk to School' week, so try if you can, to walk more often to school.
During the week commencing: Monday 15th July, some children in Year 3, 4 , 5 & 6 will be taking part in cycling proficiency lessons during the school day. They will be learning about how to use their bicycles safely on and off road by trained cycling instructors.
