Merry Christmas from the JTAs
The theme for the December badge is a Hedgehog.
At this time of year, most hedgehogs will be hibernating away from the cold weather, although as the weather has been mild this year, we might see some making quick outings for food. Hedgehogs are nocturnal animals, who often sleep during the day in a nest or under bushes and shrubs before coming out to feed at night. Hedgehogs have weak eyesight but a strong sense of hearing and smell. They can swim, climb and run quickly over short distances.

Use the template with the attached sheet to design a banner that can be displayed outside school.
Design a slogan that can go on a banner to encourage people to dress brightly ready for the darker evenings. Include things that will make you seen by drivers in poor lighting and bad weather conditions.
Think about what would look good on a large banner displayed outside school and remember to use bright colours, write clearly and make sure any words are spelt correctly.

ARE YOU ACTIVELY TRAVELLING TO SCHOOL?
We have launched our Smart Movers campaign for this year. If you actively travel to school by walking, scooting or by parking nearby and walking you will receive a badge every month. The theme for this year's badges is British Wildlife. The badge for October is a Fox.
DID YOU KNOW?
Foxes are one of the most well-known animals in the UK, they are native to Britain. I am sure you will have all seen many brave foxes on your journey to and from school, even though they are most active at night. At this time of year, the cub foxes are dispersing to find their own territories.
