Road Safety

The Road Safety team are visiting our school again this year to teach all the children how to be safe on the roads. They will be in on Thursday 9th and Friday 10th March 2017.

The sessions for each year group are as follows:

Class Outline of session
FS1 Sadler Street - Interactive sessions using a picture board with stick on characters and a story sack. Children will begin to learn that: They should hold hands with a known adult when near roads; they must stop at the edge of the kerb before crossing the road, that with 'their adult' they need to look and listen for traffic, that they should always use their car seat / restraint when in the car.
FS2 Sadler Street - Interactive session using a picture board with stick on characters and a story sack. Children will consolidate and expand on their knowledge from the session they had in Nursery the previous year (See above)
Year 1 Pedestrian Training Level 1 - Interactive classroom session with practical element at the road side. Children will consolidate and expand on previous learning from Nursery / Reception and will then visit the roadside whilst remaining on the pavement to raise awareness about safer places to cross and the Green Cross Code.
Year 2  Pedestrian Training Level 2 - Interactive classroom session with practical element including basic roadside procedure. Children will consolidate and expand on previous learning from Year 1. They will the participate in a basic road crossing procedure whilst under direct supervision of Road Safety staff.

Year 4  Game Over - Interactive session using visual aids - including a short film. Pupils should begin to learn how to recognise hazards and unsafe behaviour, to understand how the hazard / behaviour could lead to injury, the establish how injury can be prevented and the identify who has a responsibility for their safety. The children will also recap the pedestrian training they learnt in Year 1 and 2.

The session will allow pupils to discover the importance, and the different ways, of communicating information that can help to keep people safe, and how communication can be conveyed through pictures and visual images.
