On Wednesday 20th June, Lower School had a surprise waiting for them out on the playground! The children were amazed to find that a Police Officer and his Police car had come to visit them! As part of Lower School’s topic ‘Ready Steady Go!’ the children were given the opportunity to meet PC Pete and learn all about his Police Car. The children had a wonderful time turning on the blue flashing lights, hearing the siren and trying on parts of PC Pete’s uniform!
Some of the highlights from across the afternoon were:
Monkey class – All of the children sat in the back of the Police car and listened to the very noisy siren. George and Ronnie tried on the Police vests and hats and really looked the part! Ronnie even asked PC Pete…if they were going to drive to the Police station!
Hippo class- had a fantastic time! They loved the lights and sirens even though they made some of them jump! Dexter proved a natural driver. Harry showed great skills as a communicator as he was very keen to use the microphone in the special crash helmet.
Koala class- Everyone loved seeing the flashing lights on the police car, and liked it even more when PC Pete put his siren on! Lily-Beth loved sitting in the front seat of the car, and Alexander was the driver! Leo kept saying “Nee norr!”
Elephant class- loved the police car. PC Pete explained that he had a variety of things on his belt to help him throughout the day. Louise had handcuffs put on and pretended to be arrested! Everyone loved trying on the special clothes and pretending to help people. It was great fun to sit in the car, especially when the sirens were on!
Kangaroo class- BEEP! All the children loved having a go at sitting in the driver seat and pushing the horn! Kiera enjoyed putting on a police jacket and hat and looking at the flashing blue lights. The children all got to sit in the back of the police car…making sure they put their seat belts on!
A great time was had by all and the children thoroughly enjoyed having a real hands on experience! All of the children and staff were on their best behaviour so no one ended up being taken away to the Police station!!
