Well what a fabulous week learning all about Road Safety and what we can do to stay safe.
Maths: Linking our maths to our road safety week, we found out about the stopping distances for different speeds as well as the amount of thinking time a driver needs. This was a real surprise to the children as most of them thought that a car could stop immediately when travelling at 30 miles per hour. We also spent time walking around the playground first of all to see how long it took to walk the different distances on our leaflets and then to see how far we could walk in 1 minute, 2 minutes through to 5 minutes. The plan is that we will then use this information in our graph work next week.
English: Our English was also based around road safety with us planning, editing and presenting road safety leaflets for Key Stage 1 children with the focus on writing instructions. We also watched and evaluated several road safety videos to decide the appropriate language to use and to see how they have developed over the years.
Our Star of the Week this week is Jayla for coming to school with her enthusiasm and drive for everything that we were doing. She joined in with great enthusiasm and was keen to find out more from the Police and Fire Service personnel.
