Hi everyone,

This week in maths we have been exploring what capacity is. We have been using containers and using different items to see how much the container can hold. We have used lots of different materials in maths and have been using words such as litres (L), mililitres (ml) and cups.

Road Safety

This morning we had a visitor from RACV named Anne come and talk to us about road safety. We learnt lots of things about how to be safe around roads. Here is some useful information:

You have to be 145cm tall to sit in the front seat and so the seat belt will fit properly. – Larissa

Cross at a pedestrian crossing. – Matthew

When you are going to cross a road you need to listen for any cars. – Sophie

When you are riding your bike, wear a helmet. – Rosie

When there is no pedestrian crossing you have to stop at a place where cars can see you. – Niamh

If there is no pedestrian crossing make sure you don’t cross where there are parked cars or trees. – Annie

Don’t run across the road because otherwise you could trip over and hurt yourself. – James

If it’s a red light you have to stop, if it’s a green light you can go. – Elva

When there’s a car coming you have to make eye contact with the driver. – Siena

Never wear dark clothes when riding a bike or a scooter at night . – Ben

Always hold an adults hand when crossing the road. – Aly

Don’t cross when you see a car coming. – Chantelle

When you get to a pedestrian crossing you have to keep your feet behind the yellow line and wait for the lollypop lady or man  to blow the whistle twice, then you can cross. – Hannah

Don’t sit in the front seat if you are a child because the airbag can hit you in the face and hurt you. – Alexa

You have to be on a booster seat if you are not high enough.

You have to wear your helmet properly when riding a bike, with a two finger gap between your forhead and your eyebrows. – Samuel
