Pupils from Gedney Drove Primary School can claim to be eggheads on their new specialist subject – road safety.

Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership’s Kay Taman visited the school and children were asked to design and make their own model vehicles with one special feature.

The vehicles had to be capable of transporting an egg down a steep slope without it breaking.

As well as challenging the pupils’ inventive minds, the aim of the lesson was to teach them to be safe on the roads by belting up in cars and using cycle helmets on their bikes.

School administrator Angela Lintott said: “It was very useful and the children thoroughly enjoyed it.”
