Next week is National Road Safety Week. This year the focus is how to keep safe on the roads as a cyclist. Below is the assembly we will share with the children and some activities that they might do in class as part of the assembly time.
Road Safety Week Presentation
On Friday 23rd November we will run a ‘Be Bright Be Seen’ activity. As part of this children who cycle or scoot that morning into school will be awarded with a yellow, reflector band. These have been donated by Sutton Council so we do have a limited supply (when they’re gone, they’re gone). Miss Rubey (Infant Scooter Den) and Mr Haines (Junior Scooter Pods) will be handing them out to the lucky participants. To summarise:
- Friday 23rd November only
- Scoot or cycle (only)
- Maximum 1 per child
- First come, first served
- Infants approach Miss Rubey by the Scooter Shed
- Juniors approach Mr Haines by the Scooter Pods
This year some Year 5 and 6 children have been working hard on a variety of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and maths) projects at Overton Grange. Miss Banda always talks about the incredible passion and innovation that this team has.
A select few achieved such a high standard that it meant they could go to the Big Bang Fair. These children spent an entire day presenting their ideas and achievements at Sutton Grammar. What an incredible achievement, well done!
Next week, 21st – 25th May, is the national Walk to School Week. This means that schools and their pupils, all over the country, pledge to walk to school everyday for one week. As part of this, we will discuss with the children this week the benefits of walking for the environment, their fitness and their wellbeing! Not only does it have all these wonderful perks but the children also get a badge at the end of the week if they have walked to school everyday. Please see below the assembly and some of the posters we have shared with the children this week.
