Prep and Year 1 - Little voices, big choices
Young children are exposed to the road environment in many ways – as pedestrians, passengers and in play situations. They often act impulsively and, when by themselves on or near the road, are vulnerable to the risk of injury or death.
Research has shown that children as young as four years of age are capable of learning about road safety. With support from the school community, parents and carers, young children have the ability to learn about road safety and to learn what to do, or not to do – as pedestrians, passengers and in play situations.
This unit has a strong focus on pedestrian safety. Students will demonstrate their understanding of key road safety messages by delivering a group presentation on how to cross the road safely.
