Smarter Parker Campaign

Over the last term year 4 have been working on a project about parking around schools. We have looked at the pros and cons of driving to school and created letters and posters persuading drivers to park in safe places.  As part of the project we created our own jingles and had a year group competition to find the best jingle. The work was based around a campaign by Go Smarter and sponsored by Sun FM. Although we weren't part of the official jingle competition we were still able to have Sue Ambrosi who works for Go Smarter and Mr Carter from Sun FM come and judge our top three videos.  The finalists have all been invited to visit Sun FM and have a tour of the studios. Have a look at our jingles and some of the posters we have created and keep  an eye out for posters appearing round school and on Broadway.  The children have worked extremely hard on this project and hope that their efforts will help to encourage drivers to park safely around our school and be smarter parkers.
