Road Safety (2)

To introduce our new topic ‘people who help us’ the toddlers have enjoyed learning about the role of a lollipop person. Firstly the toddlers enjoyed watching a short video on the touch and tilt about what a lollipop lady does and how they help people cross the road safely. The children then extended this by making their own lollipop sticks using paper plates and sticks. They used yellow paint and was repeating the colour ‘yellow’. The children used their fine motor skills to paint their plates and then enjoyed sticking the lollipop sticks on the back. The children then used this as part of their play in the garden. We lastly extended this activity by the children going out in the local community to meet the lollipop person explaining what they do and let the children hold their sticks.
