Introducing our very own Kids Pack!
At First Bus, we're aware that the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak has brought a trying time for many people. We know that a great deal of our passengers are now working at home, and many of them juggling home working with activities for children and families.
We've worked to create our very own Kids Pack, designed around the framework for Cirriculum for Excellence, designed to help families, parents, teachers and schools!
Designed to suit the abilities of children from P1 through to P7, the pack contains a series of activities to appeal to each age and stage, as well as tapping into children’s love of all things bus. From creating posters on the environmental benefits of using the bus, to writing about a favourite bus journey, a word search, a ‘build a bus’ challenge, an acrostic poem and the opportunity to design a bus, the pack has been created with fun as well as education at front of mind.

Andrew Jarvis, Managing Director of First Bus in Scotland, said: “With much of the UK effectively ordered to stay at home for at least the next few weeks, we wanted to support the thousands of schools, teachers and families who are home-schooling and keeping children entertained during this unprecedented time.
“Just a few weeks ago, it was almost inconceivable that these restrictions would be in place, which only underlines what a challenging, dynamic and rapidly evolving situation the UK faces and one which First Bus is monitoring and responding to day-by-day, hour-by-hour.
“Rest assured everything is being done to keep key workers mobile as the nation comes together to limit the spread of coronavirus. I hope our activity packs will provide another means of helping to keep younger children occupied and is just a small gesture from everyone at First Bus to bring some light relief to families during this difficult period.”
