Stagecoach

Petworth Primary School visit

27 Apr 2018

  

Pupils at Petworth Primary School were treated with a visit from a Stagecoach bus on Tuesday 24 April. 

The visit was to introduce the children to a bus as many of them had never been on one. They were given the opportunity to ask the driver questions about what he does on a day to day basis as well as getting the chance to sit in the drivers cab. 

Head Teacher at Petworth Primary School John Galvin said ‘It’s great for the children to have the chance of getting on a bus and familiarising themselves with how you might catch one in reality, as well as asking any burning questions they might have had. They all really enjoyed it and it created quite a buzz within the class.”

The year one children are learning about toys and are exploring the book The Naughty Bus. As part of the project the children will be making films and writing a short story and this is why it was important for the children to learn about  buses so they could use this new vocabulary in their writing.

Assistant Operations Manager Martin McDougall also added ‘We were only too pleased to provide a bus for the school. It’s great for the pupils to be given the chance to try the bus and give them confidence and hopefully encourage them to use public transport going in the future”
