TEACHERS in Wrexham can give themselves a head start this summer by requesting a copy of Arriva’s Getting to School education pack.
The bus company created the educational resource as part of its commitment to the community.
The pack comes complete with supporting materials including lesson plans and is designed to assist primary school teachers at Key Stage 2.
Getting to School is curriculum- linked and includes a range of activities for mathematics, English, geography, PSHE and citizenship.
The pack has been created by Arriva working alongside education experts and teachers.
To help teachers access the pack, there is an Arriva website, www. arrivaschools.co.uk, where free copies of the pack can be down- loaded for use in their school.
Nick Gordon, marketing manager of Arriva North West and Wales, said: “We launched the education pack in the hope it would be a valuable resource for teachers. Teachers all over Wrexham have started to use the pack and the feedback we have received so far has been extremely positive, with the pack interesting both teachers and children.
“Arriva recognises the importance buses play in the local community, especially for young children who are reaching the age where they start to use the bus on their own for the first time.
“We hope this resource will help children understand the importance of travelling safely and considerately when using buses.”
