Our JRSO'S ( Junior Road Safety Officers) have been hard at work again this week, brushing up on their skills with a day of lessons and ideas which aid the integration of travel education into the curriculum.
Working with School Travel Plan officers from Hampshire County Council, Summer and Courtney solved Maths problems through using bus timetables, made smoothies using peddle power, watched an hilarious performance about space travel, read maps, raced a scooter around a course, changed a tyre and were taught the importance of safe and sustainable travel to school!
They did so well in fact, they won an award for the school - a visit from ' Strider', the Living Streets Walk to School mascot, to come to Winnall and work alongside the children for the day.
A great day out - well done girls!
Mr James and I were thrilled with the response to our 'advert' for House Captains for our school. We were so overwhelmed that we have created a selection of key roles for these children who, we felt, proved themselves to have the skills to work in different areas across the school.
We are very proud and excited to announce the names of these children and look forward to working with them across the coming year.
We have appointed 4 House Captains, 4 Vice Captains, 2 Library Captains and a School Safety Officer.
In addition to this, we have created a new position in the form of a Head of School who will oversee the activities of the House Teams as well as play an integral role in decision making in many areas of the school.
