Recently, the Metropolitan Police visited Year 5 for an exciting road watch activity. We went out in small groups of eight: half of us were using a high-tech speed gun, whilst the other half were stopping cars and asking the drivers questions. The speed gun was a £4000 piece of equipment that we could use to tell what the speed of cars were going at.
If cars were spotted speeding near our school, they were stopped. The police offered two options: to be questioned by us, or receive a fine.
An example of some questions we asked them are:
- Why are you speeding near our school?
- Are you aware of the consequences of speeding?
- Do you know what speed you were going at?
Then we all got to explore the police van and put the sirens on! They answered all of our questions and told us some interesting facts. We didn’t know about being in the police; we learned lots and enjoyed it immensely! Thank you to Kingston Community Police for coming and seeing us!
Izzy and Corinna, Year 5
