Requirements: Risk Assessment of streets near school by class teacher.
Aim : To introduce pupils to different types of vehicles and to use the local area to raise awareness of traffic by using small scale surveys of traffic density.
The Traffic First? series enables pupils to find out about road traffic using the area around school. Teaching begins in school with a revision of the types of vehicles and road signs which might be seen in the vicinity. Pupils are given the task of conducting a traffic survey of streets around school. The results of this leads to very meaningful discussion about the environmental and social impact of large volumes of traffic in urban areas.
Units have been developed for pupils from early stages primary to early secondary.
