Bike Safety Day
On Friday (29.09.17) Jen, Darren and Beth came into school to talk to us all about keeping ourselves safe whilst riding our bike.
They started with a whole school assembly on how to wear your helmet correctly and why it is super important to do us. We all met Mr Melon Head!
Next they worked with class 3 and helped them design helmets to keep eggs safe. Some of the eggs survived the fall from a great height but not all of them!
Later Class 4 took part in a workshop on bike miles. They all got a chance to ride as fast and far as they could in one minute.
Some year 2 children were then able to bring their bikes into school to take part in a skills session. They all worked really well and tried hard.
Finally some year 1 and EYFS children worked with the SSP staff and their parents / carers to take their stabilisers off their bikes. We were so proud of the children for trying this scary task. All children worked well and impressed us.
We had a really good day!
Monday 2nd October saw the opening of our new fantastic playground extension on our school field. After many months of planning and choosing equipment (not to mention voting for the right name for the area) we were finally able to explore and try out all of the new equipment.
Lots of people turned up to help us celebrate including representatives from our parent group, Governors and our local councillor.
Our sports leaders and playground buddies acted as teachers showing children how to correctly use the equipment and the event was officially opened by the youngest (Matthew) and oldest (Molly) children in school with a special speech from our young Sports Ambassador Mackenzie. Everyone had a fab time and cant wait to use the area next playtime.
