Today two Police Officers, Sid and David came to school to talk to the younger children about road safety. They began by telling the children how to recognise a police officer by his/her uniform. Police Officers often wear bright yellow reflective jackets when on traffic duty so that they will be easily seen by motorists and other road users. They told the children the importance of wearing bright and reflective clothing when out walking, particularly at night.
They also taught the children how to cross a road using the Green Cross Code. They looked at safe and unsafe places to cross a road and also talked about people who could help them to cross a road safely - police officer, grown ups or a lollipop person. The children were all given a road Safety Colouring book. Thanks to Sid and David for their very interesting and worthwhile talk.
