there is an excellent Scholastic book in the Early Years Themes(3-6yrs) series called Journeys.
We had a really excellent term when we did this, incorporated Road Safety and green cross code, wearing seat belts etc etc.
Played the traffic light game in pe, and borrowed road safety aids for outside- children cooperating etc.
Children are like snowflakes, each one is an individual.

There must be something in the air...my topic is Transoprt. For maths we're looking at shape, especially circles and there's quite a lot that you can do, believe me. It's great fun looking for them in the environment. Think of all the wheels you can find! Shape could also come into road signs, tickets..be different, have trianglular or circular ones
I'm also looking at position and direction in maths, but there's also length ; long and short roads...straight or curved pathways, simple mazes eg Red Riding Hood's journey through the forest.
For PSHE, I'm doing road safety, Green cross code, holding a grown up's hand etc
Good luck.. :D

We are doing The Jolly Postman and Rosies Walk as our topic for the term... so in a round about way... Journeys.
We are able to use the Jolly Postman to incorporate- money, time and wirght into our maths planning... and I have planned a science- KUW investigation to make someting for the postman to carry his letters around in as his bike has broken.
For PSHE is allows us to look at friendship and what makes a good friend, what to do if your friend won't play with you etc... along with simple road safety and stranger danger. We will also look at our local environment and our own journeys to school.
I wish you all a plesant term and hope these ideas are of some help.
Don't tell me to relax, it is only the tension that is keeping me together.
