Children enjoy being lollipop person for the day after visit from popular Heather

By Jill Dando News

Little Learners at West Huntspill Primary Academy near Burnham on Sea and Bridgwater in Somerset, England got to dress up and role-play being a lollipop person.

They were inspired by popular Heather who is their Crossing Patrol Person. She spoke about what she did every day and then enabled the children to have a go themselves.

They are learning about different people and what they do at the brilliant nursery.

Donna Prout, Preschool Leader, said: “The Little Learners had tremendous fun. 

“Heather showed us what she wears, her lollipop sign and how she stops the traffic to help families cross the road.  

“All the children wanted a turn wearing the hat and carrying the lollipop sign.”

The children got to make a lollipop sign, found a high-viz jacket and made a crossing on our playground.  

Donna added: “We have continued to play in this way learning important skills such as how to cross the road safely, following signals from the crossing patrol, both as pedestrians and with our bikes and cars.”

The Huntspill Primary Academies are a community school. They recently raised an amazing £113.49 shared between The Priory Learning Trust’s Charity of the Year, The Food Bank and towards supplies for pupils in Djibouti, the northeast coast of the Horn of Africa.  

West Huntspill Community Primary and East Huntspill Community Primary  Community Primary have both been flying high in all areas since becoming part of The Priory Learning Trust.
