We were training our special needs students to walk safely in groups, when they went to the zoo.
Our pupils aren’t used to walking in big groups. They had to learn the habits of safe walking in groups, so as not to endanger their lives and the lives of others. Children with special needs are unable to understand complicated explanations and instructions. All information has to be presented according to the individual needs of each child. We did not cross dangerous junctions, because it was our first practical training. We learned to walk on the street in pairs. The pupils have to realise that this is a safe way to walk on the street as a big group. We were trying to create habits of safe movement of groups of students on the streets.
Our initiatives were: to create safe walking habits in groups of students with special needs on the road; in this case, to form a sense of tolerance, responsibility and concern among the older children towards the younger.
