New KS1 activity book helps children develop road safety skills

Monday 27th February 2017

A new activity book has been launched to help Key Stage 1 children develop the knowledge and skills they need to keep themselves safe on the road network.

‘The Journey’ is the latest title produced by the specialist road safety consultancy Room 9 Media, which has published a wide range of road safety and sustainable travel resources for each stage of primary school. Room 9 Media also has a wealth of experience working with road safety teams on a number of bespoke projects.

The Journey is designed to give children the opportunity to think about their own journey to school, and covers relevant messages that are pertinent to safer and sustainable travel including transport choices, holding hands, ‘stop, look and listen’, safer crossing places, hazard awareness and ‘Be Safe Be Seen’.

John Billington from Room 9 Media, said: “The content and approach has been meticulously researched in conjunction with teachers, road safety and sustainable travel professionals and children themselves.

“The Journey forms the ideal basis for several lively and engaging lessons. It can also be used as an ideal accompaniment to practical pedestrian training.”

Copies cost 42p each or 38p each for 3,000 or more copies (plus delivery). For more information contact John Billington.

In the cartoon above "nice to see" the car parked on the School Keep Clear lines. Hope this is one of the wrong things to pick out!
