Living and learning: I know what a drug is.

Thursday 08 February 2024

In Living and Learning, Year 4 have learnt about what a drug is and how to handle medicine and other household products safely.

We know that drugs are substances that have an effect on our mind or body.

We had a visit from D-Side Dave who taught us about alcohol. We spoke about how to identify if something has alcohol in it and why is it important that children do not consume alcohol until the legal age.

We learnt about how alcohol is measured and discussed why adults might choose to drink it.

We ended our lesson by trying on a pair of glasses that made us feel like we had drunk alcohol. It was funny to see how Year 4 reacted but provided us with a clear take home message, too.
