  • Drug Educcation as part of Safety week

    Published 28/05/19

    During safety week, year 5 and 6 children had  a session which culminated their drug education. We have been learning about the circulatory system this half term and the session helped us to link the threats from the social choices we can make to the damage that can be done to our bodies.  We were really impressed with the knowledge in the class and their ability to appreciate why people may make choices that can be dangerous.  Hopefully the session, which engaged and interested the whole of our year 5 and 6, will have a lasting impact to keep our children safe and help them with future challenges.
