Road Safety Week using PowerPoint + 31 Different Ways Of Using This Resource In The Classroom

Road Safety Week using PowerPoint + 31 Different Ways Of Using This Resource In The Classroom

You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different aspects of road safety being shown in each of the photos. I have added a PowerPoint with 31 different ways you can use picture flashcards in the classroom. You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching display about Road Safety. The students could also take the laminated photos and sort them into different Road Safety Activities. The students can then discuss why they think each aspect of road safety is important. The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.

School Streets Audit - real world road safety learning around school

School Streets Audit - real world road safety learning around school

This lesson involves discussion in the classroom, followed by walks following routes in the immediate school area, then further discussion in the classroom. The lesson is suitable for all classes, from Nursery to Primary 7, with discussions modified according to the year taught. The school streets audit could be carried out by one class or year group. Alternatively, each class within the school could take a route from the school to involve the whole school in conducting an audit. There are a number of objectives relevant to carrying out the School Streets Audit: • To learn about road safety in a real-world context • To contribute evidence to a School Travel Plan • To identify areas where safety could be improved by infrastructure (speed bumps, double yellow lines, crossings, etc) in order to request such improvements from the Local Authority.

Family Fun Boxes - for Teachers and Parents

Family Fun Boxes - for Teachers and Parents

The goals of this program are to provide an opportunity for parents and children to enjoy books and reading together, and to encourage students to reflect on their experiences through the use of journals. This home - school connection will enable the teacher to use the journal portion of each activity as an evaluation tool for each student, and, during the year, the students will be able to progress through the journal writing stages as they gain confidence. Each Fun Box contains one or more books. Some of the books are at the child’s independent reading level, and others are meant to be read to the child. Children share the Fun Boxes with their families, reading and sharing the books, working on the activities that are part of each Fun Box, and then making an entry in the journal. Fun Boxes answer those requests for “homework”, and also provide a focus for parents who wish to help with their child’s education, but often do not know the best way to accomplish this.

Train Journeys Wordsearch Transport Vehicles Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Train Journeys Wordsearch Transport Vehicles Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Train Journeys'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
