This week is Road Safety Week at Cathedral School.
In assembly we thought about different ways to stay safe and over the week all pupils will be learning about keeping safe as they cross the road. Events include visits from a Road Safety Officer and Pedestrian Training for Years 4 and 5.

Why not test your knowledge with some online activities?

Even though I am 10 I can still learn more detailed rules about road safety. The website was very helpful and maybe one day I will teach other children younger then me on how to cross the road safely and what to do and what not to do for example: cross at a safe place, (subway. zebra crossing, traffic lights a quiet straight road with no parked cars, a lollipop man will guide you to safety across the road sometimes). What not to do: do not run across busy, main roads or any road with cars coming up and down, do not be impatient and not wait for the greenman and just run across the road.
I really like how this can help little children and older children because even though the older children have more experience in crossing the road, bike safety and many others, they can still learn more about how to be safe with anything that has to do with the road.
I really enjoyed learning about road safety because I am in Year 5 now and I get to go home alone. I will be skilled in knowing how to be safe on the roads. I learnt that you have to not run on the road and sometimes I run across the road and I know that should break that habit. Now I am a road safety expert and ready to take on the road !
We really enjoyed learning about road saftey and the Highway Code. We think that road safety week is a really important week and is one that you can learn lots from, it is important to know the things the website taught us and now both of us can rollerblade safely, we can also ride our bikes safely in the dark,with our protective gear on!
This week already we have learnt so much and learning new things or going over important things that can help us as we progress, is great.
I learnt many different things about Road Safety. I learnt new signs( ->) means one way street
These games have helped me understand the roads and their rules. Now when I go out and about on my own I can be safe crossing roads. Also, if I am in the car I now know not to distract the driver. I am really enjoying road safety week

I played the Don’t Distract Dad game and I learnt how to be a safe passenger in my car. This game asked me questions about how I should behave in the car and would tell me why I should or shouldn’t do something. I also played a game in which you had to find 13 clues about a crash scene, write a police report, then looked at what the people involved in the accident should have done to prevent the whole thing from happening.
The road safety games help me find the best places to cross when I go by myself, they remind me to look left and right in addition to listening for any cars or buses coming up or down the road.
I tried the first game and it was fantastic I would recommend it to anyone.
I really enjoyed playing the game. If traffic is coming, let it pass.
I think road safety week is a really good idea, as it teaches -and reinforces- how to be safe on roads to everyone. I really enjoyed the activities, and I think this will benefit young children as much as it benefited me. Here is my police report on the crash in one of the games:
A cyclist was going down the road while carrying a bag on the handlebars. When a dog ran onto the road, the cyclist suddenly stopped, and the bag got caught in the wheels, sending the cyclist into the air. Also, this meant that the taxi behind, going very fast, suddenly stopped, and the door, which had not been closed properly, flew open, and the passenger flying out onto the road with her parcel she wanted to deliver. The reason why the taxi was going so fast was because the post office was about to close, and the woman wanted to post the parcel quickly.
I think that these games can really help people when crossing the road. Even for the more experienced people, they can still be really useful. The games manage to cover everything you need to learn when crossing the road (where to stop, how to cross etc.) in a series of fun activities. These games are definitely worth playing.
The road safety was very useful to me because it helped me to remember the rules.
I loved learning about road safety because it taught me about crossing a road safely for future reference.
Even though I am ten years old I still need to know about road safety. Also I have learnt that even though there are no cars or bikes coming you still need to look both sides.
I loved learning about road safety! The games are also fun but a good way to show you when to cross a road
I thought the website was very helpful and useful; I learnt a lot of different things from it. These games can help anyone no matter what age you are. They remind you to look left and right also they remind to always cross in the right place. The games and the website helps you a lot. I learnt how to cross safely and how to be safe on the road.
The games are really helpful and I am eleven and I have lots of experience on crossing roads, but I still need to learn new things like how to be safe when bikes are coming, not only when I am riding my bike. The games can really help smaller children to understand the rules of the road. I really enjoyed playing them.
FOLLOW THE RULES OF THE ROAD !
The website has definitely built my confidence on crossing roads/road safety, as you have to solve problems as if it were the real world. Any of those problems you may discover, but then the website then gives you advice on how you can solve each problem which I find very useful. I strongly recommend this game to everyone no matter what age because it really helps you whenever you are unsure about crossing roads or when you need to stop and listen for the traffic. The things I have learnt are: you have to cross at a zebra crossing or where you can see traffic lights, make sure you stop and listen for the traffic, make sure you are always concentrating on the road and do not run when it is time to go.
I think it is important for children to learn about road safety; but this website does more then that, it helps you to understand at any age to learn what to do if you were on any transport or on the road, it even says what to do if you had a animal which can also be helpful.The best thing is that it is for all ages so your parents can get involved.
The road safety games are really good because they help you to be safe on the road whatever age you are and that is why people should listen to what is said and not just take it for granted.
I really liked these games; I thought they were very informative but still fun and I would recommend them to anyone who wants to know how to cross a road safely. Also I think that Road Safety week is a really good idea because it lets people know how to cross a road easily and fast.
I have learnt that you should not run across the road. I loved it it was really fun 🙂
I really had fun doing the road safety. I learnt a lot of new things.
I really enjoyed using Tales Of The Road. I thought they were very interesting facts!
