Brighten your jacket

A group of children learnt about how to keep themselves safe when out for walks during lockdown especially when it was a dark day or evening walk.

They looked at the clothing and accessories which helped to keep

 

themselves bright, visible and safe. They designed their own jacket.

 

 

 

Bling your scooter competition

We had lots of fun making scooters look bright, fun and safe and showed them to our friends scootering along the corridor!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Scooter/bike training

Children in Key Stage 2 have a fantastic opportunity to learn to ride a bike or scooter. The sessions are fun and the children gain some great skills.
