HELP YOUR CHILD WITH SPELLING
http://www.spellingframe.co.uk is a free website that covers all the National Curriculum spelling rules for Key Stage 2. If you would like to help your child practise their spellings or go over spelling rules that they are not sure about, then this website is great.

A MESSAGE FROM PCSO BURDA
Last month's ward crime stats are below. Burglary was low although motor vehicle crime remains high despite two of our main targets being arrested last month.
I can see on our systems this morning that several vehicles were broken in to last night in the N11 area. If you have been a victim of this it is quick and easy to report on the Met Police website, just click the 'Report a Crime' button on the homepage. When one of our main offenders was arrested last month, he had several items on him which were probably stolen from vehicles that night but as not everyone reports such crimes it will probably be impossible to trace every owner.
One thankfully rare incident to make you aware of was a theft on Friern Barnet Road N11 on 6th February at midday. The female victim was walking along when two males on a black moped stopped beside her. One asked for directions with an A4 size piece of paper in his hand. Whilst the victim was distracted the other suspect snatched her bag and they then rode off towards New Southgate. The suspects were older than the suspects that normally commit ‘moped enabled theft snatch’ offences as these suspects were described as being between 30 and 35 years old.
