Road Safety Week

During the week commencing Monday 15th November 2021 the Eco Council invited

the whole-school to participate in a poster competition to raise awareness of road safety,

please see the attached flyer: Road Safety Week November 2021 Poster Competition

 

There were lots of amazing posters created by children in Key Stage One:

Here are some of the happy 1st and 2nd place winners, 

with their stunningly illustrated and very informative road safety poster designs,

proudly being awarded their certificates by their class Eco Councillor.

You can see their winning posters on display outside in the Key Stage One playground:

led by our newly trained Forest School Leaders Matt Smith and Phil Oakley,

in our brand new Forest School area on-site since Spring Term 2022 – hooray! 🙂
