night safety song

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Below is a specially written interactive song in which children repeat a rhyme, in loud army training camp style, all about wearing bright clothes to stay safer at night.
From the booklet


Fluorescent jackets if you have them


• Line the children up in lines of four to six behind each other, like a squad of soldiers.
• Briefly explain about boot camps and soldiers going on long route marches.
• Jog on the spot and pretend you have a heavy pack.
• Call out the lines in a really loud ‘sergeant’ rhythm.
• Children copy each line as they jog.
• The final line can be repeated.

Bright is right boot camp Song

When I’m walking by the road,
Gonna crack the Highway Code;
Traffic coming will see me,
My coat’s as bright as it can be;
Fluorescent may be hard to spell,
But it sure has kept me safe and well;
Stickers on bags reflect the light,
A shining example when it’s night;
Don’t just wear what’s dark outside,
Drivers aren’t all eagle-eyed;
So if you want to do what’s right,
Show the world that you are bright!
