Building on our topic learning from earlier in the week the children were tasked with learning how to be safe if they are ever in a major earthquake. From my time spent in New Zealand I had learnt to be Turtle Safe which is a child friendly video teaching this potentially life saving skill. It involves drop to the floor, cover your head and hold onto a table leg. The children were incredibly engaged with the lesson and enjoyed the drama involved. We then discussed the kinds of items you may want to put into a box should you need to make an emergency evacuation. All children had five choices to make from a range of items such as fresh food, a deck of cards, torches, bags just to name a few. They all sensibly chose water and packaged or canned food, but a lot did not want to be separated from their special soft toy!
