Looking at Road safety

This week both morning and afternoon Nusery have been learning about crossing the road safely. The children set up outside as a road and used the bikes and trikes to show how to cross safely. In Nusery we looked at the story of ‘Ziggy going to Nursery” to reinforce the main safety ideas of: holding hands, waiting behind the kerb and looking and listening for traffic. This week we went to Wee Green Space a different way, we walked along Jesmond Avenue, looking at the different traffic signs, markings on the road and using the pelican and puffin crossings. At Wee Green Space the children were interested in numbers: identifying them, ordering them and making quantities of numbers.

The afternoon Nursery also enjoyed using the climbing tree as a rocket. Counting down before they blasted off to Space. Look out for our next blog after the holidays.
