Activity 1: Introducing the theme


20 minutes

This theme can be introduced through the following story, to be read aloud:

After the story, talk about what can be learned from it and ask questions:

  1. What happened when Klara went with her mum to the shops? What should Klara have done? What else did Klara learn that day? Why was mum so pleased with Klara at the park?
  2. Talk about when children should hold hands with an adult (e.g. when walking on the pavement near a road, in a car park, when crossing the road). When do we not need to hold hands?
  3. Emphasise that holding hands with a carer near traffic is the best way to stay safe.
