Key Stage 1 & 2

Role Play Equipment - nursery/pre-school children

A two week loan of our role play equipment is an excellent way to reinforce the Pedestrian Training packages offered by the Road Safety Education Team. Fun, interactive and versatile, these resources can support the teaching of road safety within your curriculum. The equipment is most suitable for 3-6 year olds, but can be used effectively with older primary school children and children with learning difficulties. Included in the role play is a zebra crossing mat, belisha beacons and a pelican crossing.
