Lessons in road safety at Hertford Barns

Hertford Barns road safety

Pre-schoolers from Hertford Barns Day Nursery were delighted to welcome a special visitor to the setting as they took part in a range of activities to learn about road safety.

Following an interest in the topic amongst the group, children from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery in Cole Green were thrilled to meet Matilde from the local School Crossing Patrol Team, who spoke about her important role within the community, before delivering a masterclass in staying safe as a pedestrian with the help of some special props.

Using a stop sign, reflective clothing, traffic lights and their very own zebra crossing, pre-schoolers enjoyed role playing activities with Matilde to help understand how to navigate different scenarios, as well as putting the ‘stop, look and listen’ technique into practice.

Hertford Barns Team Leader, Hatty Gouldstone explained;

“Not only did our children enjoy the exciting hands-on activities, but also loved having the chance to ask questions and engage with a real expert. It’s moments like these that truly make a difference in shaping our little ones understanding of the world around them. We are very grateful to Matilde for taking the time to come and educate the group and equip them with practical life skills that they can carry with them as they grow.”
