Winners and runners-up from Grove Vale Primary School in Sandwell celebrate with Sam and Phoebe.

After an exciting few weeks the World Cup is over and so is our summer competition. We were overwhelmed with 820 Key Stage 1 and 417 Key Stage 2 entries from across the West Midlands. We were super impressed with all the hard work that had gone into the characters and comic stories.

After much deliberation by the team over at Letzgogreen Towers we have chosen our top three entries:

Key Stage 1

  • 1st Dylan from Grove Vale Primary School in Great Barr (Sandwell)
  • 2nd Olivia from Grove Vale Primary School in Great Barr (Sandwell)
  • 3rd Renee from St. Paul's C of E Primary School (Sandwell)

Key Stage 2

  • 1st Kirsten, St. Brigid's Primary School (Birmingham)
  • 2nd Adchaha, Wyken Croft Primary School (Coventry)
  • 3rd Zara, St. Mary's Catholic Primary School (Dudley)

Watch this space for Dylan and Kirsten's creations as they are currently being transformed into Letzgogreen website features!

Well done everyone, thanks for your wonderful entries. Look out for our next competition in December.

Letzgogreen go to Hurst Hill

Claire and Fleur from the Letzgogreen team visited a Dudley school to deliver a special workshop aimed at younger pupils. The reception class at Hurst Hill Primary School have been learning about transport. During the workshop the children told us they were very excited when they travel on the bus, train and the Metro! Lots of the children enjoy walking to school and jumping in puddles on the way!

Harry takes over Virgin Rail!

Image for Harry takes over Virgin Rail!

Harry Johnson, age 9, from Sandwell took to the airwaves to announce the next stop during a trip to London aboard Virgin Rail.

Harry, who attends Highfields Primary School in Rowley Regis, was visiting the capital to support his dad Matt who was running the London Marathon.

On his return journey Harry asked the conductor if he could make the next announcement as they were approaching Coventry - and he agreed!

Harry was really proud of himself and impressed the other passengers so much they gave him a big round of applause.

Well done Harry from the Letzgogreen Team - and well done to Matt for completing the marathon and raising lots of money for charity - that’s super sustainable travel!
