Scooter Workshops: On 17th June, Year 2 classes welcomed Neville from For2Feet who took groups of children onto the back playground to polish up their Scooter Skills. The sessions are designed to increase childrens’ safety when out on their scooters as part of our 'Walk to School' initiative. The children then went out with him onto the pavements around the school so they could assess risks in the real world. The children had a fantastic time and the workshop sessions were a brilliant success.
