night safety song
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 http://think.direct.gov.uk/education/early-years-and-primary/docs/out_of_school_booklet.pdf
Fluorescent jackets if you have them
â€¢ Line the children up in lines of four to six behind each other, like a squad of soldiers.
â€¢ Briefly explain about boot camps and soldiers going on long route marches.
â€¢ Jog on the spot and pretend you have a heavy pack.
â€¢ Call out the lines in a really loud â€˜sergeantâ€™ rhythm.
â€¢ Children copy each line as they jog.
â€¢ The final line can be repeated.
Bright is right boot camp Song
When Iâ€™m walking by the road,
Gonna crack the Highway Code;
Traffic coming will see me,
My coatâ€™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 itâ€™s night;
Donâ€™t just wear whatâ€™s dark outside,
Drivers arenâ€™t all eagle-eyed;
So if you want to do whatâ€™s right,
Show the world that you are bright!
