PSHE – Road Safety Ask a grown up to help you get onto the THINK! Website:
Go to education resources. 3-6 years section. Watch the Kids Know Best film and the Safer Journeys Anthem. Now look at the Road Safety Checklist. Do you know how each of these things can help us to be safer on the roads? Discuss it with a grown up and then go for a walk around your local area – how many things can you spot that have been put there to help us all to be safer on the roads?
