Living and Learning: Staying Safe week comes to an end

Sunday 10 February 2019

The final two days of our Staying Safe themed week continued to be filled with visitors, visits and more great learning.

Thank you to Allerton Grange who supported our themed week by hosting two of our classes.  Year 6 had to be very safety conscious when attempting to scale the climbing wall.  The technology department allowed Year 5 to safely investigate and explore a variety of different equipment.

Rachael from the Dogs Trust visited all classes on Thursday to talk about keeping safe around dogs.  The children were taught to always check with an owner to see if it is safe to stroke a dog and what to do if a dog runs towards you.  Have a look at Year 3’s class news post to find out more.

Jane Cusworth from Leeds Beckett University also joined us on Thursday to cover some basic first aid with different classes.  Thank you to those parents and carers who joined her for the first aid workshop at the end of the day.

On Friday, Steve from British Military Martial Arts gave some great self defence tips to the children.  BMMA run a martial arts after-school club at school every Monday so contact the office if you’d like more details.

There was also a water safety theme to the day with a visit from the Canal and River Trust to help to keep us safe by rivers and canals.  Key water safety messages were given such as lying down on the floor when pulling someone out of the water.

Finally, thank you to Catering Leeds, our school meal provider, who gave hand hygiene sessions to Reception and KS1 classes.  Keeping our hands clean and safe from germs will protect us from becoming sick and passing on germs to others.

There have been some great safety messages across the week from all our visitors.  Ask your child/children what they have learnt across the week in respect to staying safe
