Sadly, every week 6 children are seriously hurt or die on our roads (statistics from the Brake web-site.)
However, there are things we can do to help keep our children safe in our local community, our school council will be working on these this term.
This game helps children find out how important it is to wear bright clothing, especially when the daylight hours are shorter.
We held a competition in in Road Safety Week, children designed their own posters about keeping safe on the roads.
Our School Council judged the winners. We think they are amazing! The winners each won a bright beanie hat to make sure they can be seen easily.
