In school today, we had a visit from the NSPCC. There was a KS1 and a KS2 assembly which promoted awareness about how to stay safe. (Check out the 15 January news article, Pants! The NSPCC safeguarding campaign, for some support at home.)
Next week, our Living and Learning statement of the week is ‘I am aware of risks’.
To support both of these things, this week’s homework task is a whole-school Talk Time homework:
I am aware of risks.
Talk with your child about risks. You might want to talk about:
- risks at home, at school and in lots of other places – can your child consider risks in different situations?
- weighing up risks – some risks (like putting your hand up to answer a question) is a safe risk as the worst that can happen is you might get the answer wrong; other risks are more dangerous – can you think of some more examples of safe and unsafe risks?
- risks to physical health (such as smoking), risks to mental health (such as stress) – can your child think about other examples?
- …and anything else that comes up!
