This counter only counts visitors once so that we see the actual number of visitors to our page.


Our blog was set up, primarily, for children in school to see what others were up to when off-site. However, after only a few weeks of actually getting pictures on the site the possibilities for inspiring learning are becoming apparent.
We'd already established links with two schools in France but we are now exploring the potential of mutual blogs so that our children can comment and interact with international partners. We're receiving pictures from the arctic from one of our parents and the level of interest in geography is rising withouteven trying. The potential is immense.
It might sound like it but we're not anoraks!
BLOGGING'S GREAT FUN
and, at the same time, a fantastic educational opportunity.

Joe's bright idea shines in road safety poster competition

(viewed 1776 times)
Bookmark and Share
Ten-year-old Joe Williams, a pupil at Heath Hayes Primary School, Heath
Hayes, Cannock, has won a competition organised by local housing
refurbishment specialist Lovell to design a road safety poster.

Six local schools took part in the competition run in conjunction with
Cannock Chase District Council.

Joe's winning entry - designed to encourage children to make sure they can
be seen by drivers when out and about - shows a boy on a zebra crossing
wearing high-visibility clothing and gloves with the slogan Be Bright
Tonight.

"Well done to Joe for coming up with a powerful poster which really gets the
message across," says Lovell resident liaison coordinator Debbie Adams who
organised the competition.

The poster competition was judged by Anne Ames, chair of the Chase Tenants'
and Residents' Federation and Ian Tennant, head of housing for Cannock Chase
Council. Lovell, which has local offices in Martindale, Hawks Green,
Cannock, has been working with Cannock Chase Council since 2003, helping
deliver the local authority's major programme of improvements for council
homes in the area.

To celebrate his win, Lovell presented Joe's school with 60 mini
high-visibility reflective vests that pupils can use on outings as well as
high-visibility wrist bands. Joe also received tickets to take six friends
for a Laser Tag game.



"We had some great entries in the competition and they all showed that the
children were thinking carefully about road safety and the importance of
staying safe when they're out," says Debbie Adams of Lovell. "Now that it's
autumn and the nights are drawing in, it's particularly important that
youngsters understand how they can make sure they can be seen on darker
mornings and evenings."

Police community support officer Davina Hickman also helped support the
poster competition.
