The Louis Taylor Road Safety Show
This week, Year 2 and 3 were lucky enough to watch a fantastic Road Safety Show, which has been developed using magic and entertainment to deliver those all important messages to pupils. The children absolutely loved meeting Troy and Billy Beacon. Louis took them through a series of examples of experiences that they have had by the road and the children helped to navigate them through some tricky decisions.
Billy has two BIG feet to remind him to STOP well back from the kerb, two big eyes to LOOK around very carefully, two big ears to LISTEN to traffic and a big round head to THINK. Billy Beacon encourages children to look out for him, as he will show them a safer place to cross. However Billy also reminds them that they MUST still hold a grown-up’s hand when crossing, which is why he has two hands as well.
The children were absolutely astounded when the handkerchief appeared and they were even more amazed when they were able to ‘throw’ invisible colour to the picture and magically make the colour appear. Louis was captivating throughout and the children really took on board these important messages. What a spectacular afternoon.
