Suggested Learning Experiences

  • Brainstorm different words to describe what safe looks and feels like – children could attempt to illustrate their ideas.
  • Brainstorm all places that can be considered safe/unsafe– in groups, choose one place and give as many reasons as possible for place to be safe/unsafe – report back to peers.
  • Encourage the children to consider the law around smoking in a car. Play this clip about smoking at home and discuss the key messages from it.
  • Brainstorm all the people at school and in the local community who can help to keep them safe – choose one person and interview/invite them to speak to class and/or research their job/profession.
  • Arrange a visit to or from the Fire and Rescue Service. Use this link to find your local fire station. During the visit, encourage the children to find out how to make an emergency call.
  • Put the children into groups to act out a situation where a cigarette has caused a fire eg it was dropped on the floor,  the contents of an ash tray are not put out properly. Children should demonstrate, in their role play, correct procedure for calling the emergency services.
  • Sort pictures people, places and objects into safe and unsafe categories and explain why they consider them to be safe/unsafe.
  • Explore the local area identifying important features to do with safety.
  • Collaborative learning - work in groups to make a poster about one of the issues covered eg road safety posters.
