Staying Safe at Home
A Message from Road Safety at Notts County Council:
During these unprecedented times, most children are at home, and when the weather’s good, often playing outside. So road safety messages are still important.
The message is simple – Gardens are the place to play at the moment, not pavements or the road.
Click HERE to see the “Stop, Look & listen”. Three simple words that we should all embrace for life.
A quick point to avoid unnecessary printing. The first two pages are suitable for all primary ages, whilst the third page is aimed at Key Stage 2.
Click HERE to see a home worksheet which covers issues like running into the road after a ball and we have also covered some key vocabulary used in Road Safety.
It is designed to be printed at home, where possible. Page 1 is aimed more for KS1 children and Page 2 for KS2.
Click HERE to see a worksheet about children’s bikes. They may not have been used for a while and we need to make sure they are in good condition. We also look at a few things that cyclists can do to make themselves a little safer. Again It’s a PDF, so easy to print at home if you can. Maybe families with bikes can take the opportunities to look at all bikes, including the grown-ups?
