Year 5 were recently visited by 2 members of Southend Council’s Road Safety Team. The children were told about all aspects of crossing the road safely and what to look out for (the dangers) when being out and about on our pavements. As part of this session we took a walk along Constable Way and into Turner Close, looking out for hazards such as low kerbs, driveways and reversing cars.
Also, the children took part in an interactive road safety quiz and were successfully able to answer questions and make comments about what they had seen and learnt. This will obviously stand them in good stead as and when they start travelling to and from school independently.
