Stoke Goldington CE First School
March 2015 Update
Year 2 pupils at Stoke Goldington CE First School always look forward to their special annual visit to the Hazard Alley Safety Centre at Kiln Farm, Milton Keynes and this year’s visit was no exception.
The 8 children were able to brush up on their safety awareness skills in a really ‘hands-on’ visit,
exploring everything from how to make an emergency 999 telephone call, to how to put someone in the recovery position for first aid.
The Centre features all sorts of interactive areas which recreate potentially hazardous situations whether it’s in the home, on the road, near water or on a building site. The children learned how to stay safe when visiting the seaside, or when using the railway plus what to do in the event of being involved in a fire.
What’s more, a representative from the Hazard Alley Safety Centre came back to School the following week to deliver a session on internet safety.
The Busy Bees Early Years Foundation Stage children loved the opportunity they had to join in with the village’s indoor bowling club for a bowls session. The children learned how to play the game, enthusiastically cheered on the adults whilst they played, had a go themselves and had great fun.
To show their appreciation to the Club for giving them the opportunity to try bowls, the Busy Bees took great delight in baking a rather special chocolate cake for them and presenting it at the following week’s session for everyone to enjoy.
