We’re so happy to be back after the Easter break with your wonderful children, and hope you all had a great Easter! This week we’ll be settling back into the school routine and learning all about Road Safety – a very relevant topic, as developing road safety skills from an early age is hugely important, and will stand to the children as they progress through life. We have already been building a good foundation in road safety awareness throughout the year with our trips to the GAA field, nature walks and spring cleaning walk where the children all wore their hi vis jackets and walked carefully in pairs, looking each way every time before crossing the street – this is a vital habit to encourage and practice with young children. As part of the Road Safety week the children will be doing some related crafts and drama, as well as learning a road safety song.
Stop, Look and Listen (tune of 3 Blind Mice)
Stop, look and listen, stop, look and listen,
Before you cross the road, before you cross the road.
You use your eyes and you use your ears,
And if no traffic at all appears,
Then you cross the road…
Holding an adult’s hand!
