Living and learning : I know what a safe drug is

Thursday 05 January 2023

Today in our Living and Learning lesson, we discussed what drugs are used for, when we should take them, who can provide them and how to safely store them.

We each shared stories about a time where we have been poorly and what types of medicine helped us to get better. We then acted out a number of scenarios to show our understanding of illness, what to do when poorly, who to tell and who to trust to give us medicine. We also learnt that we should only ever have medicine when we are poorly and never take somebody else’s medicine.

One child said ‘My Mummy keeps all of the medicine in a cupboard that I can’t reach. It keeps me safe.’
