Welcome to our blog. We are a class of year 0-1 students (5-6 yr olds) at Hope Primary School in New Zealand. Our teacher is Mrs Ross and this blog is a journal of our learning experiences while we are here in Room 3.
Room 3 and 4 have been learning how to be safe in cars and when crossing roads. Constable McKitrick came to school and we all practiced putting our safety belts on in his police car.
We practiced crossing the road at school and also walking past sneaky driveways. When we were in Richmond we had to be really careful as there was lots of traffic. We walked across pedestrian crossings, and had to look both ways in case there were any cars coming. We had to make sure they stopped for us. When we crossed at the traffic lights we had to wait for the green stick man before we could cross. Just ask your child to learn more about safety in and around cars and what to look for.
