Children at Ropsley Primary School were given a road safety lesson in assembly to help them stay safe during the dark nights now the clocks have gone back.

The assembly was part of the ‘Be seen, be safe’ campaign. It was given by headteacher Ann Cook and supported by Co-Operative Funeralcare in Grantham. The children were taught the importance of wearing reflective clothing when out in the dark, and all recieved a reflective badge.

Victoria Baker, of The Co-Operative, said: “It is important that we can help support such a lovely rural school such as Ropsley by reinforcing road safety to all of the children.”

The funeral director also donated many packets of poppy seeds to Ropsley Primary School to mark Rememberance Day. The children scattered the seeds in their natural garden to remember all the lives lost during the First World War.

Pupils also held a minute’s silence on November 11 at 11am to pay tribute to the fallen.
