Living and Learning – Drugs, alcohol and tobacco

Thursday 18 January 2024

Across all classes in Year 3,4, we have been learning about drugs, alcohol and tobacco. The definition we have learnt is that a drug is a substance that changes the way the body or mind works.

We had a visit from local charity D:Side where we learnt about the dangers of smoking and a huge variety of facts. These included there being 4000 chemicals in a cigarette. The children listened really well and made some thoughtful contributions.

Help at home by asking your child which facts they can remember. D:Side smoking education D:Side smoking education
