Learning objectives

  • Using the senses to deal with traffic.

In Year 3 children become ‘Danger Detectives’. They need to use their best detective skills to search for clues and identify how to use the road safely, including understanding the dangers of driveways, crossing between parked cars, being observant and using senses.

Children’s confidence to use the road safely is developed through a range of interactive discussions and an engaging animation. Children are presented with opportunities to share and improve their existing knowledge and develop strategies for crossing the road safely.
