The children in Reception have been learning about how to keep themselves safe. We focused on road safety due to the night drawing in and the evenings becoming darker.
The children learnt about safely crossing the road using 'Stop, Look and Listen' as their catchphrase. The children were able to successfully identify how to cross roads safely using pedestrian crossings and we discussed the importance of looking both ways and listening for the sound of traffic and hazards.
Later in the day, we used our bikes and scuttle-bug scooters to practise some of the knowledge and skills that we had learnt in the morning through role-play traffic systems.
