16 Nov It’s Road Safety Week!
This week, we are taking part in Road Safety Week.
This means that we will be looking at how to stay safe when we are near a road. This could mean if we are walking, on our bikes or scooters, or even on the bus or in a car. It’s really important that we are safe when we are near roads and then we encourage others to be too.
Here are some top tips on how to stay safe when you’re near a road:
- If you’re in a car, always wear your seat belt
- Look both ways before crossing the road
- If you wear headphones, take them out so you can hear if there are any cars or bikes
- Cross at a safe spot – a zebra crossing, a pedestrian crossing or where there is a lollypop person
- Hold an adult’s hand when crossing the road
- Never cross the road in front of or behind a large vehicle like a lorry, bus or truck – this is because you can’t see the other cars
- If you’re wearing a hood, take it down to cross the road – you can’t always see with a hood on!
- If you cycle or scoot when it’s dark, where something that is hi vis – these are bright and reflective so that cars and people can see you
- Avoid looking at your phone
- Don’t ever play near a road
We are running a road safety poster competition. If you would like to enter, please create a poster showing how we can be safe near roads and either give your poster to your class teacher or Ms Martin.
