Fact file

This project is for pupils in Years 5 and 6.

Following a hypothetical road accident, the pupils play the part of accident investigators, using the picture display and written reports of the accident from all those concerned.

The pupils use the information to discover the key messages which are reinforced on conclusion of the presentation. The key messages are:

  • Identifying safe crossing places
  • Green cross code
  • Crossing with a school crossing patrol
  • In-car safety
  • The importance of wearing bright, fluorescent and reflective clothing.

How far, how fast?

Used to heighten pupils' awareness of vehicle stopping distances.

Generally an outdoor resource because road safety staff use their cars (stationary) attached to the timing equipment. Therefore access to an off-road area is necessary.

Cool kids

Short classroom session aiming to teach pupils how best to cross the road, particularly between parked cars.
