Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service has launched the third module of an interactive road safety workbook for students home-learning during the coronavirus pandemic.
The workbook is a free resource available for road safety officers and others to use and distribute to students and colleagues for home schooling purposes.
The third of four modules, which has been sent to schools across the area, focuses on pedestrians. It is targeted at KS3, KS4 and KS5 students.
The module looks at the importance of social distancing and the challenges this can pose when sharing the pavement with people from other households – such as crossing the road more frequently or stepping out into the road.
It also includes general information about road safety as a pedestrian and thoughts on personal safety when travelling alone.
There are exercises to complete, an assignment, and a quiz to test learning, as well as content to help mental health and promote interaction with family members.
The final module, which will be published shortly, will focus on getting about on two wheels – cyclists and powered two wheeler riders.
