Learning to be safe

 

Class 4 yesterday visited Skillszone in Gloucester to find out about ways of keeping ourselves safe. We spent time in the internet cafe learning about online safety, toured a house to look out for all the safety hazards, learnt what to do in a fire and saw the affects of a fire in a bedroom. Other scenarios included water safety, building sites, road and farm safety. Fireman Obi led our visit and gave us an interactive quiz to complete at the beginning and end of the visit. We were certainly much more safety conscious by the end! The visit was summed up by the comment of one class member: ‘I thought health and safety was sad and boring until I came here!’
