Year 6 learned all about road safety with the fire service on Tuesday. We learned that you must ALWAYS wear a seatbelt – and put it on BEFORE YOU SET OFF. If you cycle, you must ‘ALWAYS WEAR A HELMET’. Any distractions, e.g. mobile phones, must not be used if you ware walking near a road. Also, headphones should stay out of your ears so that you can hear traffic. Booster seats must be used in cars up until a child is either 12 years old, or 135CM tall.
Year 2 learned about how to know if there is a fire in the house. Each house should have a smoke alarm upstairs and downstairs. These should be self tested once a week. If the alarm sounds, go to the nearest door and test the heat of the handle with the BACK OF YOUR HAND so that you can still grip when needed. If it is not hot, get down LOW TO THE GROUND, FIND HELP AND CRAWL TO SAFETY. All fire engines will arrive at your house within ten minutes of a phone call. If the handle is hot, get to the nearest window and open it, and call for help. If you can get out safely without breaking the window, use a duvet, or a cover to land safely and on a soft landing.
