YR5 - Crucial Crew - 12th October 2017

Lesson: Learning Outside the Classroom

Class: Year 5 Year: 2017 - 2018

What an absolutely fantastic morning!  We joined St Helens Council’s Environmental Health, Road Safety, Ranger teams and Merseyside Police at the annual Crucial Crew event to act out a series of hazardous scenarios and emergency situations.

The aim of the event was to enable children to:

  • become more aware of personal safety
  • make a contribution to crime prevention
  • avoid being a victim of crime
  • know what to do in an emergency

The council’s Road Safety team delivered information about being safe near and on the roads; the Environmental Health team talked about hazards at home and staying safe online; whilst the Rangers discussed safety and awareness in parks and near water.

Merseyside Police explained to the chldren how to make a 999 call and introduced them to the 101 number as a way of reporting crimes and other concerns that don’t require an emergency response. 

A highly informative morning!
