Important Citizenship Lessons
This month, all pupils in Year 6 took part in the Redbridge Junior Citizens Scheme held at Ilford Army Reserve Centre. They were placed in various scenarios that involved simulated danger in order to understand how to deal with different situations that may arise in and around the wider community. Pupils received advice on how to look after themselves and each other from members of the police force, fire brigade and other emergency services.
‘The scenario involving a fire inside a home was interesting because it helped us to understand what to do if we or someone we know was ever in that situation. We learnt how important smoke alarms are in saving lives too.’
