Police Safety Talks – Internet Safety and Road Safety

Leswalt Primary had safety input from our local police yesterday.  Primary 4-7 pupils learned about how to keep themselves safe online whilst Primary 1 to 4 had a road safety talk in the sunshine.

The boys and girls had the opportunity to practice how to cross the road in the safety of our outdoor area.  There was lots of discussion on what we should to when want to cross a road.

Have a look at the children practicing.

If you would like to continue to practice at home, here is a checklist to help remind children of what to do.


National Share A Story Month

Did you know that May is National Share a Story  month?

This is an annual celebration of the power and magic of storytelling. Organised by the Federation of Children’s Book Groups, it is a wonderful opportunity for families to share stories and books.

Spending just 10 minutes a day reading and sharing stories with children can make a crucial difference to their future plus it’s a lovely thing to do!

World Book Day are offering free Share A Story resources to help you join in including a Share A Story Reading Stars game, top tips for sharing stories, book review templates.


This year’s theme is Myths, Magic and Mayhem.

Here are some suggested reading titles for you:

Why not encourage your child to create their own mythical beast for this year’s competition! Click here for competition details.  The closing dates is the 1st of June, 2021.

The Pupil Council Members thought it would be a good idea to  upload a digital library of books you might like to read and share at home.

After a suggestion from Pupil Council members, Luke B and Calder, we enjoyed a session of story sharing together to read for pleasure. Have a look at the lovely time the children had reading together in the beautiful weather.
