During the second half of the Spring Term we are holding
'WHEELIE, WALKIE WEDNESDAYS'
The STAR group have designed and produced a leaflet to promote this event.....which is to promote walking to school, scooting to school and parking away and walking to school.
Each class will have a STAR wallchart to record their class numbers achieving these healthy and environmentally friendly ways of travelling to school every Wednesday.....and then hopefully the good habits will be continued for the other days of the week too!
Look out for 'BIKE IT BREAKFAST' events this year.
Breakfast will be served in the hall and will include toast, muffins, crumpets, yoghurt and fruit.....along with water, milk, fruit juice and milkshake.
Last Autumn we had 'a FRIENDSHIP WEEK' to link in with National Anti-Bullying Week.
We have now bought some new playground signs which focus on 'How to be a good friend to others'...the new signs have been put up around the play-deck and in the junior playground.
We had lots of fun making friendship recipes, friendship hands ,paper chains and posters to highlight important anti-bullying issues.
We also made 'friendship leaves' to place on the STAR board in the hall.
Look at some of our other projects that the STAR group have organised and promoted............
We have held regular 'Walk to School' events and had a fantastic 'Silly Socks Day' as well as 'Walk to School with a Friend Day'.
