Interpreting texts in road safety

As part of a unit of work, students in stage one read a variety of texts and viewed a variety of print and television advertisements focusing on passenger safety.

As a class group they discussed the main road safety messages they found in the texts.

Students were then asked to write the main messages they had learnt after interacting with the texts.
