Safe walking

This term we are exploring 'safety' in our community. We started with a session on safe walking - making sure we crossed safely and looked in sneaky driveways. Below are photos during this session.

We came back to the classroom and made a wordle of the key words and messages from our session.

We have used the knowledge we have gained about safe walking to write poems. Look out for these in the coming week.

Later in the week we explored how to be safe around dogs. We went on to a website and discovered that around dogs that are active and a little bit scary we should be a tree.

On Friday we had a visit from the dog handler and he was impressed that we knew how to be 'a tree'. At the end of the session we all got to pat the dogs - that is after we had asked the owners if we could and we patted the dogs under their chins.

  1. I liked the picture trail of the dogs and the writing that went with it. It helped the work have more meaning and build a better picture of it!
