ROAD SAFETY WEEK - 16th-22nd NOVEMBER 2020
This year's theme is 'NO NEED TO SPEED'.
During this week the children have been completing activities to raise awareness and understanding of how to keep safe on and around the roads.
At Wyburns we have been working really hard to update and improve our allotment. It needed a lot of work after lockdown, as although it was used to plant things during this time, many weeds then appeared, especially in the greenhouse. Well done to each and every class who has help weed and improve our allotment. There is still more work to be done but it is now looking much better. Here are some photos of the children enjoying the allotment.
WALK TO SCHOOL WEEK - October 2020
Wyburns do a fantastic job of walking to school all year round and this was no exception in Walk to School Week. During this week each child received a walk to school booklet, completed fun activities, celebrated it as part of an assembly and received a badge at the end of the week for their efforts. Many walk to school stickers were also distributed throughout this week and our Eco Warriors did a fab job of collating the information. Our surveys found out that over 85% of children at Wyburns Walk to School and those who used a car or other forms of transport then walked from a distance. We are still working to improve this by encouraging parents and carers to park further away from the school. A fab result and well done to you if you walk or part walk to school each day!
BIKE TO SCHOOL WEEK - October 2020
Bike to School Week was a great success. We had some great photos sent in from many children.
We look forward to celebrating again next year.
THANK YOU VICTOR
We sadly say goodbye and thank you to our lollipop man of over 30 years. He served the crossing on Eastwood Road and has helped many children to keep safe whilst crossing the busy road. Here is a card that the Eco Warriors and children of Wyburns made for Victor. We will miss you Victor. Thank you for keeping us safe.
The Government have launched a fix your bike scheme which provide vouchers to help you get back cycling again. These can be obtained from: https://fixyourbikevoucherscheme.est.org.uk/
Take a look to see if you could receive up to £50 towards bike repairs. Happy cycling.
Walking to school is so important. Check out the Wyburns Walking Bubble map to help promote walking to and from school or at least parking a distance away from the school to then walk in. This will help to keep everyone safe around Nevern Road. Please help us to keep the road and pavements clear.
Well done to everyone who entered the Walk to School Competition.
Here are our winners:
1st place - Phoebe
Runners up - Zach and Grace
A brilliant achievement!
Mr Broad came in to visit us to explain all the exiting events at Hadleigh Park! He also promoted biking to school and the benefits. Keep cycling or scooting to school Wyburns!
Eco Warriors have been busy locating funding for a compost bin! They wrote a letter to the local garden centre Alton's explaining how having a compost bin would really reduce he amount of rubbish we produce as a school. Alton's then kindly donated a brand new compost bin to our school. It has been installed on the Key Stage 1 playground. Go Eco!
