Go Safe with Ziggy
Go Safe with Ziggy helps equip children with the skills, knowledge and attitudes that will help keep them stay safe now and in later life.
About the Go Safe with Ziggy resource
Go Safe with Ziggy sets young children up with skills they’ll use for life. ‘The activities, ideas and games are all fun, easy and engaging. They have been designed to help form positive attitudes and good habits from a young age.
Both the online and the offline materials make light work of road safety learning, bringing the main themes to life and ticking off learning outcomes across subjects in Curriculum for Excellence.
Skills that last a lifetime
Road safety lessons might start with a story or a game but the real learning will come from the experiences children have. We suggest using the stories to start the learning journey, then exploring the key themes through the active experiences and play.
This resource has been developed alongside:
- Scottish Government’s policy on early intervention and Curriculum for Excellence framework which encourages hands-on, multimedia experiences as well as tasks at home, nursery and school
- The ambition to target three key age groups: 0-3, pre-school, and the transition into primary 1
- Home learning as part of the early learning curriculum through Early Learning and Childcare centres and primary 1 classes
- The aspiration to encourage and inspire young children (and the adults around them) to go on their own road safety journey through real experiences alongside Ziggy and playing, talking, and reading together
