Visits this half term...
Year 6 will be visiting the Imperial War Museum North.
This is part of our 'War and Peace' theme
The first half term, Class 6 will also be attending 'Safe Squad'
What is Safe Squad?
Well... we work with professionals from many services, including the emergency services to learn safety skills:
- Children watch different scenarios, such as: the correct use of 999; dealing with peer pressure; reporting and witnessing crime; learning what is a hate crime and the best way to tackle difficult situations
- Children learn about digital safety and how to stay safe online. They watch videos and discuss the problems of not staying SMART online
- Children take part in fire safety training, with particular focus on their own homes. They also have the chance to learn CPR and how to place someone in the recovery position - using resuscitation dummies
Later in this half term, Year 6 will also be investigating the life of Anne Frank...
and sensitively discussing the persecution of some people by others
