Stop, look, listen!

Stop, look and listen! It’s an important safety message to learn from a young age, and one that certainly stays with you as an adult, even if it does make you think of hedgehogs!

Learners at RIS Ilkeston have been practising the well known phrase. Fiona Ryan, Specialist Teaching Assistant said: “This road safety message is something we do every day with the learners when venturing to the park.

As we reach the road, I ask the learners what comes next and they answer: we stop, we look and we listen. We cross when it is safe!”

Fiona added: “I always think real life experience is better than watching a video. As my learners are all under 13 and don’t venture out without parents, I’m working on those life skills with them to ensure they know how to stay safe in the community.”
