Hazard Alley

15 October 2021

Year 4 have been learning about How to Keep Safe in their lessons this term and in conjunction with this they have been venturing off to the Hazard Alley Safety Centre to continue their learning. This is an interactive safety village where children are shown how they can stay safe, understand risks and avoid accidents, shown to us through powerful experimental learning.

They learnt how to safely cross the road and the need to wear a seat belt when in a car. They also practised making a 999 call in case of an emergency and learning all about how to give the correct information if they ever had to.

They were presented with different scenarios throughout the day and asked to describe what actions they would take, one scenario was visiting “No.2 Brook Street” and they were asked what they would do if the fire alarm started sounding? The boys all gave great answers and learnt a lot throughout the day.

They have also been learning about electrical safety in their Science lessons and they really impressed the volunteers at the centre with their knowledge about electrical safety in the home. They all came away with a greater understanding of safety.

“The alleyway was quite scary, but apart from that it was great fun and I learnt a lot.” Beacon Boy, Year 4
