      Students discuss what they see in photos and brainstorm new vocabulary, creating a class vocabulary list. Then then identify and sort verbs, label the photos, or find words from base words, and add these to the class vocabulary list.

  • Lesson 2: Helping others stay safe

      In this whole class activity, students experience modelled writing of a procedure, then write a simple procedure for arriving at a station and waiting on the platform for a train. They work with partners to share their procedures and give feedback, then collaborate to improve their procedures.

  • Lesson 3: Spreading safety around

      Students help the teacher edit a procedure by reordering the steps and correcting tenses. They then write instructions for staying safe on a pedestrian level crossing on sentence strips/sequencing software, or write, share and publish a procedure to help keep someone safe on a train station platform or level crossing.

  • Lesson 5: Putting procedures in context

      Students create a procedure to keep other students safe while crossing at a pedestrian level crossing, and choose an appropriate slogan from the ones the class designed. They test their procedures with a partner and use feedback to edit them. They communicate their messages to the wider school community in fun and creative ways.
