    We have been learning about Staggered Junctions

    I know what a Staggered Junction looks like.

    I know traffic will come from four directions.

    I know if I cannot see clearly down all four roads, I must find a safer place to cross.

    I know a parked car would block my view of the road.

    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 Staggered Junction there will be too much moving traffic and parked cars will block my view of the road and it will not be a good place to cross.

    I know I then 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.
