Stop, look and listen was the message of the day for a group of young pupils learning about road safety at a Taverham school.
Nursery children from Taverham Hall Preparatory School were visited by Norfolk County Council's road safety officer, Peter Cornwell, and his puppet friends, Benjamin and Bethany.
Between them, the trio discussed with pupils the important safety rules they needed to follow while travelling in cars.
The children learnt that they should stay alert and carefully look left and right to check oncoming traffic, the importance of always having an adult on the outside of the pavement while walking and why they should always wear a seat belt in a car.
In small groups, the children also demonstrated to Mr Cornwell the skills they had already learnt and mastered on the balance bikes recently purchased by the school.

Following a safety theme, firefighters from Blue Watch also visited pupils at the nursery and brought with them a giant red fire engine.
The children met the crew and were given a tour of the engine to learn all about the different types of equipment used and how it is used to put out fires.

A spokesman from the school said: 'The youngsters loved learning more about the water hoses and the tools which they used to cut cars apart after traffic accidents.
'The children adored dressing up as fire fighters, wearing the uniforms, helmets and holding the torches, radios as well as sitting in their massive fire engine.'
