Thank you to Ella from Alban Class and Dylan and Eva from Spencer Class who have helped me to write this blog….

At this week’s School Council meeting we talked about the problems of some adults parking their cars either fully or half on/half off pavements. The children talked about how hard this is for other adults who have prams or buggies to get by and how dangerous it can be for children who ride their scooters or bikes to school. The School Council want to tell all adults:

‘Try not to park on the pavement when you bring your children to school’

‘Don’t park too near the school gates’

and ‘Keep all the children safe – park away from our school.’

At the end of our meeting the children, after much discussion, decided to launch a competition. Everyone at school is invited to design a poster with pictures and a sentence or rhyme to remind everyone to park safely. On Friday, every child will be given a piece of white A4 paper for their design. Please use felt pens to colour your picture and write your sentence/rhyme (maybe an adult could help you with the spelling).

The School Council have decided to award 8 prizes for the best entries and there will also be a prize for the class with the most entries.

Please make sure your name and class are written on the reverse of your entry – we will be making the winning entries into waterproof posters. If you need some inspiration then take a look at the posters which are currently on our gates and fences. Closing date: Friday 28 November.

Happy Designing!
