Sgt Taylor and a team from Shipley Police worked with us to improve the safety of our children on the streets and roads around our local area. They had some new recruits who went on a 'speedwatch' with them. They had the opportunity to talk to motorists about safe speed and safe driving in our area. They also asked everyone to:
1. Always wear a seatbelt.
2. Make sure parking around school is not on the yellow lines.
3. Wear bright reflective clothing in the dark winter months for your own safety.
4. Only talk to adults you know and definitely not strangers.

The final of three afterschool sessions saw the completion of 14 large lanterns for the Listers Lantern Parade on Saturday 11th October. A large group including mums, dads, grandparents and children - not to mention afterschool club, worked hard with a lot of glue and tissue paper to finalise their creations. Feedback about the sessions tells us there's no middle ground when it comes to sticking; GLUE - you either love it or hate it! Well done to everyone concerned and thank you to Katie and her team for their valuable expertise. We hope you can all make it to the parade.
Listers Lantern Parade will be taking place on Saturday 11th October. After-school club and a group of families are busy making lanterns from willow and tissue paper, led by artist (and one of our own parents), Katie Jones. So far they have been working hard to get some structures in place and later this week they will be getting messy with lots of glue and tissue paper. If you want to see the finished lanterns you will be able to watch the parade in Listers Park at dusk on Saturday 11th October.
