Road Safety Day
As a class we explored the dangers of walking behind parked cars and encouraged the children to think deeply about what could happen. Some of the children instantly noticed that some of the back windows of the cars are taller than the children.
We also conducted a traffic survey, to find out what types of vehicles are the most popular and had a debate about which type of vehicle was the most dangerous.
We spent the afternoon exploring a Gist lorry. We found out some interesting facts about stopping distances and where to stand so a lorry can see you along with how to cross a road safely.
