Year 5 Junior Citizenship

Last week Year 5 took part in the Wandsworth Junior Citizen Scheme.  The trip was planned to give pupils an opportunity to develop their knowledge of being responsible citizens. Children took part in a range of challenging and exciting activities and scenarios that involved role play and interacting with qualified and experienced individuals from the council and agencies such as the local police, fire and ambulance services.

Children learnt valuable lessons about fire safety and what to do in the event of a fire at home; basic first aid;  safety around water; graffiti; personal safety and safety around the railways.
