KS1 Club 2017
This week, the JRSO’s lead a club just for KS1! The children enjoyed listening to and talking about a book all about road safety. They even began to design posters to be displayed around the school and on our blog!
Thank you for these fantastic road safety posters and well done to all those that took part in the club or competition!
Road Safety Club 2017
This Friday (20.1.17.) the JRSO’s helped to plan, resource and deliver a Road Safety Club during lunch. They did such a fantastic job! I was so pleased at the number of children who showed interest and would like to thank all that attended, as well as apologise to those who we unfortunately had to turn away! We are already looking forward to our next club, which is to be held next half term.
Tallulah and Jared led an assembly about road safety to the whole school. They demonstrated the importance of wearing a cycle helmet whenever you are out on your bike. They also launched their bike helmet design competition. Entries can be placed in the gold box in the main entrance.
Throughout the morning the JRSO prepared a road safety hour for the whole school. They impressed the teachers of Hedgehogs, Owls and Foxes, by teaching their classes about road safety. In the juniors we had three activities. One was in the ICT suite. We played some educational games on road safety. Another one of our activities was ‘spot the dangers’, where the children had to spot dangers in two pictures (night and day). The last and final activity was decorating a paper man with shiny and coloured material, that gave the effect that people in cars can see him.

JRSO’s have arrived at Harestock!
Last week two children from Year 5/6 attended a training day in Basingstoke learning about their new role as Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSO’s).
They will be supported by members of the school council and will promote Road Safety to children throughout the school.
The first meeting took place today and we have agreed themes for the year:
Autumn – Be Safe, Be Seen.
Spring – Green Cross Code; Belt Up!
Summer – It’s Playtime; bike / scooter safety.
We are planning to run lunchtime road safety activities for different year groups across the academic year. First up is Year 5/6. After half term the children will be given opportunities to take part in designing posters, dressing a ‘model’ in safe clothing for dark nights, and completing word searches.
The JRSO’s and Vice school council representatives will be running these sessions.
