Thank you to Knighton Fire Brigade who kindly brought their fire engine to the school. The children had a fabulous time exploring the equipment.
As part of Dosbarth Gwennol’s work for Safer Internet Day the children took part in two activities this morning. The first was to read the story of Mog and Jo. Mog and Jo were two children that loved to play games online. However, one day they saw something that worried them. Luckily they told a trusted adult what was worrying them. We discussed the importance of always telling an adult if something makes us feel worried or uncomfortable.
Our second activity was to express a range of feelings caused by technology and the Internet.
Jim and Rob from Powys Road Safety visited us today to introduce the Kerbcraft scheme.
Kerbcraft is a practical child pedestrian training scheme designed to teach pedestrian skills to 5 to 7 year olds, by means of practical road-side training rather than teaching in the classroom.
Kerbcraft is built around teaching three skills: choosing safe places and routes; crossing safely at parked cars and crossing safely near junctions.
After half term, the children will be taught in the road environment near the school, in pairs or groups of three children, by trained volunteers.
We were joined by Angela today from Mid West Wales Fire Brigade. Angela is a fire safety officer. She talked to us about the types of fire, fire hazards and she read us a story about a dragon called Sbarc with an important message “Don’t touch, tell!” The story was about the danger of touching lighters and matches.
