Road safety

Tuesday 19 March 2024

This afternoon, the Year 2’s had a very important visitor in school. The visitor was from Leeds City council and spoke to the children about road safety.

First, the children spoke about different parts of a typical road: a road, kerb and pavement. The children then spoke about what type of traffic they might see on the road and path, and added  images to a map.

They were given scenarios both within a car and whilst walking or riding on the pavement, and discussed how to stay safe.

We know that we must wear a seatbelt whenever we are in a moving vehicle. We must never distract our driver to ensure the journey is safe.

We also know when we are crossing the road, we have to follow the rules: stop, look and listen.

Help at home: by talking to your child about road safety at home.
