The school crossing patrol visited the school on Tuesday 14th May. The children were very excited to meet the lollipop lady. First, she showed them her uniform (a long coat and a hat) and explained the importance of it being a bright colour.
Then, she showed how to screw the lollipop stick together to make it tall for the cars to see and explained what was on it and why. Next, she talked about her role and how she helps children cross the road safely everyday.
After that, she taught them how to cross the road correctly by first looking left and right, listening for cars and then walking across the road not running.
The children were then separated into two groups. One group were given the opportunity to play the role of being either the lollipop person, a motorist or a pedestrian. They then acted out scenes of crossing the road, which they thoroughly enjoyed. The other group were given a dressing-up trunk so they could dress up as a lollipop person or a police officer. The children were really excited to dress up as a school crossing patrol person. All the children had an opportunity to take part in both group activities.
Finally, they were taught a song:
Stop, Look and Listen
Before you cross the road
Use your eyes and your ears
Before you use your feet
Children were given a leaflet all about how to cross the road safely and correctly with the song included and a large sticker.
Welcome back to the Summer Term.

We are very sorry - our school Twitter account is currently out of action due to updates which are taking place. We hope it will be up and running very soon. We wish all of our children and families a very Happy Easter!
A massive thank you to families for supporting this worthwhile cause. School Council will continue to sell daffodil pins in school until the end of March.
On Friday 15th March, the pupils and staff showed their support for Red Nose Day by dressing all in red and taking part in lots of fun Red Nose Day activities. A huge thanks to everyone for all their efforts especially Mrs Dawson and the school council for their fantastic assembly.
Over the past two weeks Year 4 have been lucky enough to take part in Bikeability in order to achieve their level 1 certificate and badge.
19 children from the year group took part and truly enjoyed the experience. They have increased their knowledge of road and bike safety whilst impressing staff with the array of fantastic bikes and helmets. Well done Year 4.
A fantastic game played by both teams. Taking the lead in the first half 2-0 we knew we were in for a great afternoon!
The team rotated players continuously which supported their teamship skills.
After coming in at half time, Mr Smith discussed keeping focused and making sure our heads were not to go down if the opposition were to score against us.
Woden then came back into the game with some out of this word strikes not even Jordan could save. The boys kept their heads held high even when going down 4-3. With seconds to spare, we scored a late equaliser ending the game 4-4. A fair result. I would like to say a huge thank you to the children' s older siblings who came to not only support their younger brothers but the whole team, continuously providing encouragement and support. We are proud to have had you as a part of our school and to see you have grown into mature supportive young men.
Well done Edward the Elder
On Friday 8th March, the children and staff celebrated World Book Day. The theme for this year was 'Classical Authors'. Each class chose a classical author and book to learn about during the week finishing with World Book Day where they children and staff had to dress as a character from the book. Examples included P.L Travers - Mary Poppins, Charles Dickens - Oliver Twist and Enid Blyton - The Secret Seven. The focus for Early Year was 'Fairy Tales'.
The children, staff and families did an incredible job with their spectacular outfits. We really have some fantastic creativity within our school!
The children in Early Years had a wonderful time learning all about how to cross the road safely. The Lollipop Lady taught us all how to use a zebra crossing safely and we had lots of fun dressing up and acting out different roles. We especially enjoyed singing ‘The Road Safety Song’.
