Description

This amateur film made by Mr L Hammell, a teacher at Norton High Street Junior School, shows a police dog handling demonstration followed by a variety of games played by the children in the school grounds.

The film opens in the grounds of the school and a policeman on horseback. Someone 'attacks'  the horse and rider, as children sit on the grass watching events unfold.

The policeman shows his skills as a rider to repel the attacker. The horseman rides up and down the line of watching children. Some of the children are given a rides on the horse.

Next, the children gather round the horse and policeman. General views follow of children at play on the field next to the school buildings. The film ends with some of the children playing football.
