  1. Watch traffic outside the school and carry out a simple survey. This makes a very good maths activity.
  2. Use a 'townscape play mat' or make a simple table-top roadscape from coloured paper and populate it with toy vehicles. This can be used as the basis for discussion about traffic and for building or reinforcing vocabulary or assessment of understanding.
  3. Create a large wall collage consisting of a street scene. Cut out painted vehicles or photos with labels added to build word recognition.
