    Hi all,

    I am going to be doing a lesson on road safety. I've been asked to include a 'hand holding' song. Anyone know of one? Thank you. S

    Not sure if there's anything here that might interest you. We had a 'beep beep' day a few months ago at my school.
    We made up our own road safety song, I can't remember the exact verses, but it was to the tune of 'Cold and frosty morning'
    Something like;
    We always hold hands to keep us safe, keep us safe, keep us safe
    We always hold hands to keep us safe
    When we cross the road.
    We use our ears and use our eyes, use our ears and use our eyes,
    We use our ears and use our eyes
    When we cross the road.
    We stay on the pavement, not on the road, not on the road, not on the road
    We stay on the pavement, not on the road
    When we cross the road
    As I said, the verses were the children's ideas....!!
    We had a morning of road safety, we;
    Looked at a powerpoint on road safety http://www.primaryworks.co.uk/search.php I adapted this one
    Listened to this song http://learnenglishkids.britishcouncil.org/en/songs/stop-look-listen-think,
    Made up our own (see above!)
    Made a poster using our hand prints to remind us to hold hands,
    And finally, we went out for a walk using what we had learnt. It was a really lovely morning!
    Hope that helps :eek:)
