Once Crossroad Junctions has been completed, pupils should understand how to :
Recognise where traffic approaches at a Crossroads Junction
Assess the hazards and know when it is unsafe to cross
We have been learning about Crossroads Junctions
I know what a Crossroads looks like.
I know traffic will come from four directions.
I know sometimes there may be a Pedestrian Crossing to help me cross.
I know I must first check the road closest to my right hand; this may be the road behind me.
I know I must count the roads to make sure I do not miss any.
I know I must check all the roads, and then make one final check, before deciding whether or not to cross.
I know that often at a Crossroads there will be too much moving traffic, cars will be coming from four directions and it will not be a good place to cross.
I know there is no Pedestrian Crossing to help me cross.
I know I must walk away and find a safer place to cross.
I know I must find a place where there are only two ways to look and I can see clearly in both directions.
I know I should look right, then left, then right again.
I know I should cross the road when traffic has passed and it is safe to do so.
I know I should always continue to keep looking and listening as I cross.
I know I should always practise crossing the road with adults.
