Junior Lifeskills Road Safety for Yr 5/6s

We're looking to update our resources and delivery to Yr5s and Yr6s at our Junior Lifeskills events. These are events where we have less than 15 minutes to talk to groups (between 6 and 9 students) in a round robin style.

We currently talk about the importance of wearing seatbelts, but our resources are getting a bit old. Does anybody else deliver something similar which is very interactive, and doesn't require too much talking on behalf of the deliverer (as we have to repeat this up to 15 times a day)? We're happy to change the message as long as it is relevant to the age group.

I do something similar - Safety In Action we call it - with other agencies for transition students. Yr 6 about to go into yr7. Used to do seatbelt stuff but have changed to crossing road/distraction awareness and estimating how long a car takes to stop from diff speeds. Repeat it 10 times morning and afternoon - it is interactive , done on closed road area with bus company parked by doing another activity. I have session plan and bookmark giveaway if you want them. Interested to see other ideas for this kind of thing.

Hi

We also do a similar thing. Our lesson is on peer pressure and distraction. It works well for us and all our feedback has been very positive. I am happy to send our plan over to you if you want to have a look at it.

We used the mini cycle helmets at our crucial crew event last year. The experiments are very interactive and done using eggs and the mini helmets. The students get to put the eggs in the helmets and drop them, showing how important wearing a helmet is.

Junior Lifeskills Road Safety for Yr 5/6s

Hi Tom

We've done quite a few projects in this area. One of the most recent is what we call a "CSI" inspired presentation. Originally created for Enfield in London, it has now been delivered bu a number of other councils. Essentially it's a series of pull up banners related to a fictitious RSI involving an 11 year old, with clues that build an overall picture of how it happened and what could have been done to avoid it. Spoiler alert! It wasn't just one person's fault.

The project has gone down well as there is always enough latitude to move the story around and take in children's viewpoints.

We've also created support materials of quiz booklets that the children get at the end of the day to reinforce the messages they have learned. There's one based just on road safety and another that takes in the day generally.

Hope that helps! Just let me know if you want to find out more.

Hi tom

Yes we do Crucial Crew, which is a similar scenario to yours, round robin where groups of 10-12 visit different stations and we cover seat belts too. Please feel free to email me and we can have a chat about what we deliver in that session,

Regards
Angharad

@ Keith Baldock
Has the 'crossing road/distraction awareness' training been devised in response to, or mindful of, the research on visual looming and children's perception of speed?

We have 'Warning Zone' in Leicestershire which is an interactive learning zone where all school kids added 8/10 get to spend a full day learning about all aspects of keeping themselves safe.
There are various zones such as road safety, fire safety in the home, electricity, water safety, stranger danger and knife crime.
It is a fantastic set up and sees 50,000 pupils a year through its doors, and each zone is timed so they don't get bored! Check out www.warningzone.org.uk. Well worth a visit if you want any ideas.

In Hertfordshire for Year 6, the road safety message we aim to get across is about mobile phone distraction while walking. There is a 10 minute rotation sampler activity of a similar format to what you have described and a more in-depth whole morning lesson. Both use this film called 'C U Later' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJgIeRP4tp0
