Primary 2 Enjoy A Visit From RNLI

Primary 2 recently enjoyed a visit from the RNLI.  Paul taught us how to stay safe at the beach and in the water.  The children learned that they must always 'Stop and Think' and 'Stay Together' when near the water.  They also heard a wonderful poem about 'Flea', the dog who got into trouble in the water!

The children all learned a little rhyme to help them stay safe ...

I will NEVER ... go near WATER ... without an ADULT!

We practiced how to float 'like a starfish' and Paul encouraged us all to try this with an adult as a special homework!

The four most important things children should remember when they are around rivers, lakes or the sea:

1. STOP and THINK

2. STAY TOGETHER

3. FLOAT

4. CALL 999 or 112

A huge thank you to Paul and the RNLI for delivering such an important message to Primary 2.
