Our junior Road Safety Officers and Class 5 had a visit from the Notts County Council Road safety Team.
They used a specially programmed machine to test their reaction times and see how long a vehicle would take to stop in case of an emergency. They also discussed the distractions inside and outside a car and how this could seriously threaten their safety. On Fern Road the children used a Speed Interactive Device to monitor and measure the speeds of passing cars. 54 vehicles were recorded of which 6 were found to be going over the 30mph speed limit.
All of the activities gave the children a much clearer understanding of how to keep themselves safe, either as a passenger or pedestrian.
Cropwell Bishop School had an eggstremely fantastic day celebrating Easter. The day started with an Easter Bonnet parade and judging of the decorated eggs. This was followed by Egg Rolling outside down the bank and a chick hunt. The afternoon saw Easter Buggy Races, with the whole day rounded up with an Easter egg prize giving assembly.

Class 4 had a wonderful morning with Jerome Smith from With…Chocolate, learning all about where chocolate comes from and how to make it. Jerome showed the children how to temper chocolate and made chocolate Easter Eggs which the children decorated and took home.
