25 Nov Safer Travel Police Workshop in Year 6
On Tuesday 22nd November 2016, Year 6 was spoken to by two police constables regarding safety in their local area. The children were given the opportunity to act out various scenarios, for example what they would do on a bus if a person was to graffiti and they were present, or if they were to find a bag unattended on a seat. They discussed how the contents could potentially be suspicious and therefore how they should not touch it, instead report it immediately. The children clearly enjoyed the session whilst also gaining fundamental awareness of the ways in which they need to stay safe.
Max (6 Acer):
“I have learnt how to deal with situations that could be threatening, such as if someone offered me money and told me to do something. I know I would not do it and report it to an adult I felt most comfortable telling.”
Selda (6 Acer):
“I learnt how to travel safely on public transport. I also found out about the zip card and am now aware that if you behave in a non-sensible way, you will have it taken from you.”
Georgi (6 Oak):
“I learned that some people carry big knives so you should not talk to strangers and if someone leaves a bag on a seat of the bus, you should tell the bus driver straight away so that everyone is safe and the bus driver will stop the bus and tell everybody to get off.”
