Year 6 recently enjoyed a Road Safety Workshop. They had a lot of fun reviewing different road safety rules and tips through the use of familiar games with a 'road safety' twist.
Year 6 Visit to Lifeskills - Bristol. 25.11.19
On Monday 25th November, Year 6 went on a trip to the Lifeskills Centre in Bristol where we spent the morning learning how to cope in different real-life scenarios. In fact it was such a fantastic trip that we all came away inspired. Read an example of our persuasive writing linked to the trip.
Do you want to save lives? Would you find it cool if you were put in dangerous real-life scenarios? If you said yes to any of the above, then Lifeskills is the trip destination for you. Both educational and fun, it has many things that you can learn about: how to behave in a station safety; what to do if you hear a scream in a dark alley; the safest ways to cross the road, how to make an emergency phone call; fire safety and much, much more. Nothing could be more important than saving your own life or that of another person could it? To find out more read on.
Lifeskills Fact File
Lifeskills is located in the centre of Bristol and was officially opened by Princess Ann in 2000. Did you know that over 175,000 people have been trained there since it opened- think of how many lives all those people could have saved! At the centre many scenes have been set up for children to explore under expert supervision: an alley way; a train station; a road; a beach are just a few examples of many. Investigating the ‘village ‘in small groups, all of the children work together to help each other whilst learning and having fun.
Despite the lower speed limits being adopted and made law near schools, there are still a high number of accidents that involve children; some of these accidents could be caused by young people and children always being on their phones while they are crossing roads and as a result being injured by cars. At Lifeskills, the highly trained volunteers teach children how to cross roads safely and some of the dangers that cars can present.
Ever wanted to practise making an emergency call? In the real world it is just not possible to dial 999 unless you are in a real emergency as you could put someone else in danger. Lifeskills however has the technology to enable you to make a 999 call safely without putting others at risk. After witnessing a fictional emergency situation, you can ring 999 for the operator and then be connected to either the Police, Ambulance or Fire Service. Once connected, you can learn how to give clear and vital life-saving information to those who need it. What a clever simulation idea!
In conclusion, the Lifeskills Centre can provide high quality training in addition to a fun filled experience. However as you can appreciate, with all this training on offer, the Centre is always a popular choice for school visits and trips. Therefore it is of paramount importance that any schools wishing to arrange a visit do so early to avoid disappointment.
