Our winning poem was from Lillie M in Year 1 at Waterthorpe Nursery Infant School:
Pick up your dog’s pooh,
Or it will go on my shoe.
I will walk it through the door,
or the carpet,
or the floor.
Mum will get very mad,
For a new carpet we’ve just had!
2nd prize went to Sophie in Year 2 at Waterthorpe NI School:
When you take your dog for a pooh,
Always take a bag with you.
Put the bag on your hand,
Otherwise, in it you will land.
Never leave it on the floor,
Or I will walk it through the door.
3rd prize went to the School Council at Waterthorpe NI School:
When you put your dog on a lead,
Don’t forget there’s something else you need.
Before you leave your own front door,
Collect your poo bags; don’t leave it on the floor!
Bag it, tie it, look for a bin,
When you see one put it in.
Dog poo, dog poo, put it in the bin.
Dog poo, dog poo, keep it off my skin!

On 14th October 2016 the School Councils from schools across the Westfield Family of Schools joined together for a team building day at Rother Valley. Our theme this year was 'Working Together'. Children had previously met together at Westfield School to plan the activities for the conference.
