Y6 Trip to Life Wise Centre - Crucial Crew19Nov2018

8:20 am - 3:30 pm

We have arranged a visit for the Year 6 children on a visit to The Lifewise Centre at Hellaby on Monday 19th November 2018, to experience The Crucial Crew. We normally ask for a small contribution for visits, but on this occasion, we will cover the total cost, in the hope to have your support next time we ask for financial assistance. Crucial Crew is a multi-agency experiential learning environment, which involves all the emergency services, along with other agencies. They provide Year 6 children with the knowledge and skills to cope with the dangers around them through practical experience in the form of short scenarios. In the fire safety scenario children are introduced into a bedroom. They are taught how to deal with the discovery of a fire in their home and then they have to deal with the situation on their own. The children are also taught: To make a fire plan at home How to make a 999 call The importance of smoke alarms Self preservation during a fire Fire safety in the home The foolishness of hoax calls On the day of the visit, children should come to school via their cloakroom doors for 8.20/8.25am for registration as the coach will leave at 8.35am prompt. They will return to school for approximately 3.20/3.30pm. Children will need to be in full school uniform with a warm coat and sensible footwear. They should bring a packed lunch or pre-order a grab a bag on the slip below, chargeable at £1.96 unless entitled to free school meals. If your child requires any medication such as travel sickness tablets (although the venue is approximately only 30/40 minutes away by coach), these will need to be provided on the day in a suitably labelled packet, indicating the times they need to be taken.
