Salus - Safety in Action (Year 6)
Year 6 Safety in Action Trip
On the afternoons of Monday 24th and Tuesday 25th February, Year 6 visited the Safety in Action event at the Three Hills Sports Park.
They had a great time learning all about how to keep themselves safe when they are out and about, with special emphasis on their forthcoming move to secondary school. They participated in a series of interactive workshops looking at various areas of safety including water and beach safety, First Aid and CPR, Internet safety, safety on the railways, peer pressure and the importance of good school attendance.
The pupils worked well in their teams, participated enthusiastically and were a credit to themselves and to the school. They each received a Safety in Action workbook which they will be using in class over the next few weeks to reinforce what they have learnt at the event.
A big thank you to the FoDS who provided the funding to enable every member of Year 6 to attend the event free of charge.
Here is what some of the Year 6 pupils had to say about the event:
“I thought it was good to learn about drugs and alcohol to tell you what is in them, for example, in cigarettes there is bug spray and a lot of unhealthy stuff.”
“In the water safety activity we learnt what the different signs meant and what the different flags meant and to not use inflatables when the tide is going out as they could get blown away with you in them.”
“A railway line consumes 780 volts, so it can kill you or give you a life changing injury and it can suck you into it.”
“I really enjoyed the railway safety because he showed us what to do if you dropped your phone onto the rails and he said about that you should leave it there and tell your parent.”
