Lessons in Road Safety

Road safety is a really important learning focus and a key part of building the life skills our pupils need to become independent young adults. During Key Stage 4 learning to cross roads safely is taught in the classroom and whilst out and about on community visits. During the last week Angus and Bec’s class have been carrying out some some classroom work about road safety and wanted to share the important messages they’ve learned.

Some of the key things to remember are:

  • Find the safest place to cross
  • Stand on the pavement near the kerb
  • Look around for traffic and listen
  • If traffic is coming let it pass
  • When there’s no traffic, walk straight across

The class used what they’d learned to make a film and a rap for our assembly on the theme of right and responsibilities.

The class used materials and online games from the excellent website  http://think.direct.gov.uk/education/early-years-and-primary/ , which is well worth a visit for adults and children.
