On Monday the 30th of November Years 3 and 4 went to the Safety Centre in Milton Keynes to learn about potential dangers, how to avoid them and what to do in emergency situations.
We were taken around the centre and had the chance to explore 12 different scenarios. These ranged from everyday hazards at home to the dangers of railway lines and electricity substations.
We learnt just how dangerous railway lines are and why you should stay well back from the platform edge.
How to shop sensibly and safely.
We looked at the importance of road safety. Being seen and seeing what is around you.
Building sites are full of hazards. If you are ever invited on to one, make sure you are wearing the correct protective clothing.
Every child had the opportunity to make a 999 emergency call. We had to ask what service we needed and tell the person clearly what had happened and exactly where we were.
Even with all these dangers out there, the most common place to have an accident is in your home. We looked at all the potentially hazardous things in our homes too.
We learnt about the damage that fire can cause. How quickly it can spread and what to do in an emergency.
Get out. Call the fire brigade out. Stay out.
Make sure drivers have seen you before you step onto the crossing!
Would you go down this dark alley way?
We learnt how to put people in the recovery position to keep them comfortable and stop them from choking while help arrives.
Be smart. Be safe.
