Year 2 Constable Care Safety School Visit

David (Your Move) Paddon

Earlier in Term 4, our Year 2 classes visited the Constable Care Safety School where we learnt all about road, bike and pedestrian safety. The students had a great time and we'd like to thank the parents that came along to help. Below are some photos and comments from the students that took part in the excursion:

"I went on an excursion with Year Two. It was fun. My favourite part was riding the bike and playing on the iPad. The other class got the iPad first and my class got to ride the bikes. We also had a treasure hunt there. I was very excited going there." (Francheska)

"On Monday 15 October the Year Twos went on an excursion to Constable Care Safety School. First, we listened to Prue speak about road safety and how it is important to have certain features on your bike. It is illegal not to have a bell on your bike. A stand is a good feature to have on your bike. When riding a bike you should have a helmet on your head. Next, we split into our classes and our class learnt how to use an iPad app. We used the app to follow a map with our group leaders. One of the places we went was called Powerline. It asked us about how far we needed to be away from the line. I answered the question correctly, 8 metres. After recess I got to ride a 20inch bike. I had a booklet that asked us to stop at a stop sign, trac light, railway crossing and a give way sign. As we went through all of them we got a stamp in our booklet." (Jessica)
