This week, our Core Value is Respect. We’re thinking about all the values the children in our school demonstrate every day and how together, we create a respectful learning community.
This week our Core Value is Equality and we’re focusing on anti-bullying. Central Primary School is a happy, safe place for children and this week pupils will spend time remembering how great it is to be special and different.
On Friday 18th May, Central Primary will be celebrating the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
To commemorate the Royal Wedding we are asking all pupils to wear smart outfits or party clothes to make the day feel special and unique. Pupils who do not want to wear special attire can dress in normal school uniform. In addition, we will be serving a special themed wedding lunch. If your child is usually on packed lunch but would like to try a school dinner on this day please contact the school office.
Responsibility is our core value this week. We are focusing particularly on being responsible to avoid risks that may be unsafe.
Run a Beep Beep! Day to engage early years in road safety basics.
Beep Beep! Days, sponsored by Churchill, are a great opportunity for early year’s educators to introduce children to road safety basics, with fun activities and resources provided by Brake, the road safety charity. Every year thousands of tots and infants aged 2-7 take part to help save little lives.
Every day, 500 children and young people are killed on roads around the world. Brake works to stop road deaths and injuries by campaigning for safer roads, and supports people bereaved or injured in road crashes.
To help UK early years get involved with the initiative, Brake produces a range of special resources to help little ones understand road safety basics, from the importance of holding a grown up’s hand to recognising when it’s safe to cross.
Everyone who registers to take part receives a free e- resource pack or can purchase a bumper pack for just £12.60 (per 50 children)! The bumper pack includes colouring sheets, posters, laminated activity cards, road map and A2 activity poster, certificates, stickers, balloons and themed resources
to each date.
In 2017, almost 3,000 nurseries, schools and childminders registered to take part, helping spread important messages to more than 350,000 children. The event also provides an ideal opportunity to fundraise for Brake by dressing in stripy clothes in exchange for donations. Funds raised help the charity in its work to support bereaved and seriously injured road crash victims, and campaign for safer roads.
Brake’s 2018 national dates are:
• Wednesday 7 March
• Wednesday 13 June
• Wednesday 22 November – coinciding with Brake’s Road Safety Week
Dave Nichols, community engagement manager at Brake, said: “Beep Beep! Days are a great way to start talking to children about basic road safety messages and also to remind adults of their responsibilities when it comes to keeping our roads safe and protecting little lives. The UN, backed by world leaders, has recognised the importance of improving road safety and raising awareness globally and we hope educators in the UK will make use of our new resources to support their cause.”
