Anti—Litter Month 2

the 4th April the Wizard Company came to our school. They taught us about how to keep safe and how to behave when a mugger comes to you, they did a short play about this. They taught we need to look confident: back straight, head up and eyes straight ahead. After this we played a quiz, we were all grouped into four teams: school, friends, family and public. We all had a fantastic time! Reporters HARSHIL, WADIR and KENETH 6DA.

HEY PRESTO CHALLENGE CORNER ANSWERS - How did you do?

WOW April— future walkers in the buggies along with many children and parents walking to school. Next WOW May 7th. Some drivers are still not parking properly, please park safely and not on pavements or over driveways. It is unfair to neighbours, ruins grass verges and makes it dangerous for classes coming back from trips out and makes pavements too narrow for parents with pushchairs. Police are issuing tickets to offenders.
