Y6 recently took part in the RAP workshop (Reducing Accidents at Play) at South Shields Fire Station.
The children met with firefighters who told them what to do in the case of a fire: who to telephone and how to keep yourself and everyone in your home as safe as possible.
We met with someone from Nexus who discussed how to safely get the Metro and access public transport.
We met with someone from Northern Power Grid who told us all about the dangers of electricity in our homes and outside in substations and how to keep ourselves safe around them.
We met with volunteers from RNLI who told us how to keep safe around water, including rivers and the sea.
We had a brilliant morning and learned lots to help keep us safe.
