The foundation class (aged three to four years) at Westfield Primary School in Haverhill had an exciting day with a visit from PCSO Mark Isaacs and PCSO Stephen Ridpath, who brought along a police van and uniform/hats to try for size.
The children enjoyed watching the flashing lights, hearing the siren and having a go in the back of the police van - fortunately nobody misbehaved and got taken in for questioning.
The officers also directed the children’s small cars/bikes traffic and stayed for a snack of milk and crumpets with jam made by the children themselves.
The visit helped the children understand about different jobs and people who are there to help in the community.
Two older Westfield pupils, Daniel and Tierney from the school’s Blue area, came and reported on the event for the school newspaper.
This gave an opportunity for writing with a real purpose which is encouraged throughout the school.
The school is currently inviting applications for next year’s nursery/foundation class, starting in September and there are only a few places left this year.
