Living and learning: I understand some drugs are harmful

Wednesday 13 July 2022
What is a drug? This is the question that Year 5 have been considering this week.
As a class, we discussed all types of drugs – both legal and illegal. This includes over-the-counter and prescription medicines.
We have talked about the effects that drugs can have on you and also the risks involved with taking drugs.
D-side Dave came in for a visit on Monday and he discussed the effects of alcohol. Ask your child what they can remember from Dave’s talk.
In our Living and Learning session, the children looked at different scenarios that included drugs such as caffeine or alcohol and they had to discuss if the situations were low, medium or high risk.
