On Friday, Year 6 went to Safety Works in Newcastle, where we participated in several workshops, including: water safety, internet safety, road safety, fire safety and first aid.
The RNLI taught us about the different flags on the beach and what they mean, we also learned about jelly fish stings and cold water shock and how to deal with them.
The police discussed online ‘stranger danger’ – there are 3.5 billion people logged in at any one time! They stressed how important it is to have a secure password (something that is difficult to guess), don’t use a name. We also looked at all the positive aspects of the internet.
In the road safety workshop we chatted about the transition to secondary school, the routes changing and using public transport alone. We also recapped the Green Cross Code: stop, look, listen and think (always look right, left and right again.) As well as using pelican and puffin crossings correctly.
In the fire safety section we revisited how important smoke alarms are; how to test them, how many each property should have and how often they need to be tested. We also touched upon BBQ safety- how and when to dispose of the coals.
Finally we all learned how to put somebody into the recovery position.
We had a really fun and educational morning, recapping skills we had already and learning new ones, the Angel had a great day too! #Angel20
