Safety Week

Thursday 10 February 2022

This week, we have had a few different visitors into school to talk to us about how to keep safe in different situations.

On Monday, we had a visit from the the firefighters. We talked about ways to stay safe at home and what their job involved  when they were called out to help people in need.

On Tuesday, we had a visit from the dogs trust. We found out about all the great work that the Dog’s Trust do to care for and rehome dogs.

It was interesting to learn about a day in the life of a dog at the centre.

We also got taught some great ways to keep safe around dogs to make us and the dog feel safe when playing, feeding or stroking a dog.

Did you know the dogs at the Dog’s Trust even go to dog school?

They learn tricks and skills to help them become great pets for their new owners.

Today we had a visit from LCC road safety team. We were taught the Green Cross Code (think, stop, look and listen). We practised crossing an imaginary road safely, using the actions.

To help us when we are out near a road we were taught some top tips.

  1. Wear bright coloured clothing
  2. Make sure you are with an adult
  3. If possible, cross where there is a crossing e.g. pelican crossing.

Challenge: Can your child remember the Green Cross Code?
