Keeping Safe - Road Safety
Thank you to our visiting PCSO officers (Police Community Support Officer) for reinforcing the importance of crossing the road safety.
The officers delivered 3 sessions to EYFS, Key Stage 1, Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 2; they taught the children about how roads are for the cars and the pavement is for the pedestrians and how we must STOP, LOOK, LISTEN and THINK before crossing the road. The children spotted hidden dangers and how to be very careful around parked cars. The children explored the importance of bright or fluorescent clothing when walking and how BEING BRIGHT helps us to BE SEEN. The children looked at the different types of crossing and how we know it is safe to cross.
Thank you children for listening so carefully to this important life skill. Please remember always STOP, LOOK, LISTEN and THINK.
Before leaving the school, the PCSO officers set a competition for all pupils. The competition is to design a road safety poster to help all children and adults in our community to stay safe near the roads. Three winners will be chosen and then their poster will be turned into a banner, to be displayed outside school. Please get your thinking caps on and start designing. The closing date for this is on Wednesday, 10th April 2019. Please bring any entries to your class teacher, complete with your name and class on the back.
