Did you know that in 2015 111,707 people were killed or seriously injured whilst travelling in cars ?
To keep safe in a car we should wear a seatbelt or be in a car seat. Children should be in a car seat until they are 12 years old or 135cm tall.
When we are getting in or out of a car we should do so on the path side of the car. We should always check before we open the car door and do so carefully, looking for dangers like cars or for other pedestrians.
We should pay attention to any road signs or markings.
Thank you for reading.
This term our topic has been road safety. The JRSO's have informed pupils in class assemblies and through a competition that it is very important to take care when crossing roads and things we should always remember when crossing roads or when we are near roads.
We are running a competition. Key stage 1 were asked to design a road safety poster to use outside school to remind children how to be safe and Key stage 2 were asked to make a poem, song or rap to raise awareness on road safety.
Key stage 1 winner ........
Keystage 2 winner ........
