I.M.P.S. monthly email
November 2016
This time of the year when the clocks change and it gets dark and gloomy outside, it's really important to make sure that you can been seen by motorists.
Clock face
It is really important that young people can be seen when they are out and about. Many school uniforms and coats are dark coloured and therefore very difficult to be seen by a motorist. 
Please use the PowerPoint presentation below to remind your class about the importance of wearing something bright/reflective/fluorescent during the hours of dawn, twilight and darkness.

Class activity
Encourage a class project to raise money to purchase fluorescent reflective snap bands which can be worn over the top of outdoor clothes.
All you need is a flash of something bright to alert motorists that you are about – this can be on bags, shoes or coats. 
If year 6 pupils all start to wear a reflective flash or medallion then soon the younger children will want one too.  Year 6 can take on the responsibility of encouraging the younger ones to be bright be seen.  You can find these snap bands for as little as £2.16 each for an order of 30 or more.
Do your school bags have a florescent/reflective flash?
There are lots of websites available.  A quick google search came up with this one.  
Our good friend Smiffy who does lots of cycling gave us this film from his helmet webcam which illustrates really well how difficult it is to see people in the dark.  You can see that the road sign actually shows up more than the cyclist.
