Introduction to the theme


10 minutes

  1. Ask the children what roads are for and what is found on them. What is traffic? Where can a lot of traffic be found? Why do we need to be very careful near traffic?
  2. Show the A2 colour poster of a street scene to the children and talk about the roads and traffic it depicts. Children can identify the different vehicles on the road. Discuss why the people in the picture walk on the pavement. This will lead on to the message that traffic can be dangerous – on quiet roads as well as busy ones.
  3. Emphasise that traffic can't hurt us if we are careful near it and stay safer by holding an adult's hand and not stepping into the road or a driveway unless led by an adult.
