Learning Objective: –To encourage children to be aware of safety in the car and how important it is to take responsibility for their own safety. –To inform children of the potential for a car fire.
CAR SAFETY Success Criteria: –Children should be able to explain why safety in the car is important and how they should take responsibility for their own safety. –Children should be able to discuss what they would do in case of a car fire.
CAR SAFETY How often do you travel by car? How long are their journeys? What is the furthest they have travelled by car? Are you aware of any safety precautions that they should take when you are a passenger in a car?
CAR SAFETY Did you know that that a considerable number of car accidents that occur involve children or are caused by children. Take a look at the image of a car. In pairs, I would like you to identify: What could be the hazards? What could happen due to the hazards? Now lets share what they think are the hazards with the rest of the class.
CAR SAFETY These are some of the hazards but there may be more… Child may not be wearing a seat belt Children under the age of 12 should not be sitting in the front of the car. Children should not be leaning out of the window. Children should not be distracting the driver. Children should not be blocking the drivers view. Children should keep their hands away from the door handles whilst the vehicle is moving. No heavy or large objects should be placed on the parcel shelf. Nothing should be placed underneath the child seat.
CAR SAFETY Another potential hazard is a car fire. –This can happen either while the car is travelling or while it is stationary, (this may be done deliberately to stationary cars and is called arson). Think about how you would react if the car you were travelling in caught fire? (Lets record responses) When travelling in a car the most likely place a fire will start is in the engine. You would likely see smoke come up through the bonnet.
CAR SAFETY In groups you are going to be provided with the safety procedures for car fire. Can you put the statements in the correct order. Lets share your results. (Is there a consensus? If not, share correct procedures and clarify any misconceptions).
CAR SAFETY Card Sort Activity : 1.You will be given several statements regarding Car Safety. 2.In pairs can you put the statements in the correct order?
CAR SAFETY Independent Activity 2: –In pairs can you to use the information compiled to write a safety checklist for children in the car before they embark on a journey ?
CAR SAFETY Independent Activity 3: Design a leaflet or poster giving advice to children of a similar age regarding the safety hazards that could be found in the car.
CAR SAFETY Plenary/Review: –Lets share what you have learned. –What are the important messages we need to remember regarding safety in the car?
