Today Year 4 learned about the importance of wearing a seatbelt whilst travelling in a car. Through demonstrations, they looked at the outcomes of wearing a seatbelt while travelling at 30mph compared to not wearing a seatbelt.
The importance of a using a booster seat while travelling in a car was also reinforced. By law, children under 12 and smaller than 135cm tall are required to sit on a booster seat. The children learned that this is so the seatbelt will fit across their shoulder – not across their neck.
