Children learn about traffic dangers

MONDAY was an exciting day for pupils at Winslow Combined School, when members of the DHL community project team brought a lorry to school to teach children about road safety.

More than 250 Key Stage 2 children watched the demonstrations, which included two children sitting in the cab of the lorry while the rest of the class was standing in front of it – and realising they could not see their friends at all.

Deputy headteacher Marianne Brand said: “We’ve had overhwhelmingly positive feedback from the children.

With the A413 going straight through the town, and particularly the dangerous bend in the road, we feel this is something our children will really benefit from.

“They learned things they couldn’t possibly have learned unless they’d experienced it.”
