Road Safety Week
All of the different classes commemorated Road Safety Week in a variety of ways, including Be Bright Be Seen Day for the whole school and Beep Beep Day for Foundation Stage. Year 1 spent time in their small world CP task, crossing the zebra crossing with small Lego people. They also programmed the Beebots to safely cross the road. Year 4 were lucky enough to use circuits in Science to construct a working zebra crossing with lights. Upper KS2 were able to gain a deeper understanding of how to be safe on the road with more in-depth learning.
The children in Year 5 explored the theme of Road Safety Week in a variety of ways! They enjoyed wearing their bright clothing on Be Bright and Be Seen day, where they all came in dressed in an item of bright clothing. They made their own Road Safety pamphlets where they informed people of the correct information on staying safe while crossing the road. They then planned, designed and constructed their own board games for the class to play to consolidate the road safety rules. The children then presented their board games to the class and explained how to play them, focusing on speaking and listening skills.
During Road Safety Week, Year 6 watched a video about safe independent travel and created posters about how to travel to school safely, thinking about how different it will be, travelling to secondary school. We talked about all the factors to consider before crossing the road and about the new dangers that electric cars bring (i.e, that they can’t be heard coming). Year 6 then practised crossing different types of roads independently.
