Year 6 have been hard at work thinking about road safety this week.

We went out into the car park to measure the stopping distances for a car travelling at 30 and 50 mph. Whilst doing this, we realised that at those distances a car was about the same size as our thumbs. So, ‘thumbs up to road safety’, also gave us a guide for whether it is safe to cross the road.

We also measured and walked the distances that are suggested as drop of points in the ‘Stop and Go’ leaflet. Even walking 200m, only takes approximately 2 minutes (at the most).

The blue and red flashing highlight of the week was all the different emergency service vehicles which visited (and also flew by) on Monday. We enjoyed talking to the police and fire offices about the different things that they do each day.
