Community card project offers safety and life skills – plus fun
By Caitlin Kilroy, age 11, year six pupil at Waterside School in Chesham
YEAR 6 took part in a community card project, which finished last month.
We put stickers in our book to show activities that we have done.
Year 6 pupils have learnt what we should eat so we have a healthy lifestyle and we also had a trip to the library.
The police came in to tell us what they do and how long it takes them to become a police Sergeant or a Police Community Support Officer.
R U Safe from Barnardos came in to talk about how to stay safe online and on the streets.
We also had to make a poster about loan sharks so we know how to be sensible with our money.
We had other stickers to collect, such as the sustainable travel, road safety and good attendance stickers.
I would suggest that other children take part in the project because there are terrific activities to do online and in school.
We might win an amazing trip to Legoland if we have lots of stickers, so please keep your fingers crossed for us!
