Safety Week 2018

This week, we have been looking at how to stay safe. We can do this in lots of different ways.

It was Internet Safety Day on Tuesday 6th February and we read the stories PenguinPig and MonkeyCow by Stuart Spendlow and Amy Bradley.


These books help us to know that we shouldn’t talk to strangers online as they might be pretending to be someone that they aren’t and that passwords need to be kept secret.

We used Purple Mash on the laptops to create our own rules for staying safe online.


In the afternoons, we swapped classrooms with Ruby class to learn more about staying safe.

With Miss Varley, we have been learning all about how to stay safe on the road.



WIth Miss Mason, we looked at different ways to stay safe at school, online and with our personal hygiene.

Road Safety in Pearl Class

Today we had a special visitor in school today to help us to learn all about road safety, especially since it is starting to get dark earlier.


We watched a short video about a hedgehog to help us to stay safe on the road. Click here to watch the clip on Youtube.

We learnt that you need to dress in bright clothes to make sure that you are seen on dark night by other pedestrians. and motorists on the road. We also learnt that we need to cross the road where it is safe to do so by using a zebra crossing or a pelican crossing.


We then got to have a go at using a pretend zebra crossing and pelican crossing in the classroom to make sure that we knew exactly what to do the next time we cross the road.

We are going to the library tomorrow so we will be able to cross the road safely and remember the 5 rules to help us to cross the road.

  1. Stop on the pavement
  2. Look right, left, right, left and right again
  3. Listen for the traffic
  4. Hold hands with an adult or a partner
  5. Walk sensibly across the road if it is safe to do so

How you can help your child at home:

  • Talk to your child about how to cross the road safely.
  • Make sure that your child holds your hand walking across the road.
  • Discuss where the safest place to cross the road would be.
