Child Safety Week
03/06/2024 - 09/06/2024
Child Safety Week is an annual event in the UK run by the Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT) to raise awareness about the risks of child accidents and how they can be prevented.
This week can be used as an opportunity to teach children about safety in a fun and engaging way.
Here are some ideas for activities:
Safety Scenarios: Create simple role-play scenarios that allow children to learn about safety. For example, they can learn about crossing the road safely, what to do if they find matches, or how to react if someone gets hurt.
Safety Rules Poster: Engage children in creating a poster with safety rules for the classroom. This can be displayed prominently and referred to throughout the year.
Story Time: Read books that are related to safety. There are many children’s books that deal with topics like road safety, fire safety, or staying safe around water.
Remember, the goal of this week is to empower children with knowledge and skills to keep themselves safe. Be sure to deliver these lessons in a way that is age-appropriate and does not cause unnecessary fear or anxiety.
