Monday 4th February 2019

Today children in Year 6 began a series of sessions looking at drugs education. We discussed the definition of what a drug is and talked about legal drugs that you might find in the home. The children were able to discuss how these should be stored and used. We also had a discussion about illegal drugs and the dangers that both these and legal drugs present.

We also began our unit on Digital Literacy where we have been learning about the benefits of the internet and how to safeguard ourselves about the potential dangers. We started by thinking about what information is private to us and who we can share this with. In the afternoon, we created a comic strip telling the story of a digital superhero citizen

We took part in a first aid session, where we looked at how to help a casualty in an emergency situation. We learned how to put a casualty into the recovery position and how to perform C.P.R. As part of the session we thought about some of the common injuries we may come across like burns, cuts, and choking. One of the main things we thought about was how to keep ourselves safe before trying to help others.

E-Safety Day

In today’s drugs education session, we talked about external influences and peer pressure. The children were able to recognise potential risky situations, discuss consequences and identify which of the situations they might potentially feel pressured to do.  We were then able to identify strategies for preventing those situations from arising.

In Digital Literacy today we have been thinking about cyberbullying and strategies we can use to deal with this. We also make an e-safety poster for homework to share our top 5 tips.

Today the children were presented with a real-life situation- carrying a parcel for someone for money. We discussed the possible dangers and consequences of becoming involved in this situation. The children also learned and practiced assertive behaviours in order to say ‘no’ when they didn’t want to do something.e

Wednesday 6th February

We went on a 'Road Safety Walk' with Mrs Sarsfield, she learnt the children how to cross the road safely.  They learnt how to use their eyes, ears and to think when crossing at different roads like junctions and when there are parked cars.  The children used the 'STOP, LOOK and LISTEN' rule and looked left and right whilst crossing the road.

Today the PCSO’s came in to talk to us about Antisocial behaviour and how to travel on the transport such as trains, trams and buses. We spoke about the correct behaviour and some of the consequences if we weren’t being safe & respectful.

Today we watched a number of videos showing simple steps you should follow in different first aid situations and then rein-acted these. We looked at helping someone who is choking, helping someone with a burn, how to help someone who is bleeding, an unresponsive person who is breathing and put them into the recovery position, helping someone who is having an asthma attack and helping someone who has a broken bone.  We also learnt how to put a plaster on correctly and how to clean the cut.

Monday 4th February 201: Today the children watched some scenarios and were asked to consider both the physical and mental issues of each slide. The children then discussed  with their partners what they thought. They then drew a picture of themselves  and described what they do to try to keep healthy and safe. They children talked about their senses and how they help us in life. We focused on the sense of smell. The children had to identify different smells they smelt in smell pots and try to work out what the smell was and if they liked it or no. They then had to make their own list of pleasant and unpleasant smells. Activity 3. Breathing and the lungs. The children were shown how to find their pulse and to count the number of beats in 15 second, then they went outside and jumped up and down for 30 seconds and re took their pulses. We talked about why our bodies need oxygen and explained that oxygen is a gas that has no smell and is in the air we breathe. We talked about the smoke in the air and how it can affect our lungs and discussed why smoking is bad for us.
