Year 6 @ Lifeline

Last Friday, Year 6 children attended Lifeline at Oswestry Showground.

Lifeline is an event organised by Oswestry Rotary Club. It gives children the opportunity to explore their own perception of danger; expand on these perceptions and learn how to keep themselves safe in their homes and local area.

Volunteers from the police, fire service and lifeguards, worked alongside volunteers in eight different scenarios. Year 6 thought about safety on the farm, at sea and within their own homes. They also thought about safety online, which is something we are focusing on this term.

In the first aid station they learnt basic first aid and even had the opportunity to administer their own bandages! The children had lots of demonstrations, including how long it takes a car to stop at 30 miles an hour. It was a very informative day and Year 6 were keen to discuss all they learnt.

We would like to say a bg thank you to all the volunteers for a fantastic day.
