The resource is aimed at children aged 7 to 11. No longer infants, they are beginning to seek independence and take responsibility for their actions. Just a Journey? is designed to help teachers and road safety professionals engage children in debate and promote understanding of consequences of choices made on or near roads. It covers the main road safety issues relevant to this age group.
The resource is interactive, engaging and informative. It has been designed for busy teachers to integrate it into lessons by linking directly into curriculum subjects, primarily literacy (English), but also Maths, Science, History, Geography, Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Art, Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) and Citizenship.
Just a Journey? can be used individually, in pairs or groups, or as whole class, either on individual PCs or on classroom interactive whiteboards.
