Match the description of Paula’s route with the road signs on the accompanying page.

Paula turned left when she came out of her house. She rode to the end of the road and turned right at the crossroads. Queen Street was very bumpy, so she had to slow down. When she got to the end, she turned right into North Road. She had to stop quickly, because someone was crossing at the zebra crossing.

She had to change gears to get up the steep hill. When she got to Bridge Street, she wanted to turn right but she couldn’t. She turned left instead. She thought she might have to wait at the river. She was lucky and she rode straight over the bridge. The road was very wet and slippery. Paula then turned right along Gardens Grove. She took the third turning off the traffic circle. She crossed the river and passed a school. She turned right into John Street. The road became very narrow. At the end of the road she turned left. She was back home.
