What an exciting morning in prep. We had Police Officers, Constable Tyrone and Snr Constable Dan visit to talk about police work, road and car safety and stranger danger. When students were asked what does a police officer do, here were some of their responses:
Zac, "They put the baddies in jail"
Elijah, "They give you a ticket if you go too fast"
Liam, "They are like superhero's"
Prep learnt about crossing the road safely. They learnt to cross at a crossing or lights, to hold an adults hand, and to "look right, look left and look right again". Always, Stop. Look. and Listen! Charlie said "to stay safe you hold your mum's hand when you cross the road". Koa stated "Always stay with your mum and dad".
Constable Dan touched on Stranger Danger and what to do if someone approaches you that you don't know. Charlie stated, "Say no". Harmony's response was "only talk to people if you know them".
After the talk, students were asked what they had learnt, here are some of the responses:
Chase, "Hold hands when you cross the road"
Charlie, "Cross at the crossing"
Mya, "Hold hands"
Koa, "You don't talk to strangers if you don't know them.
Prep loved holding and observing the police badge and cuffs.
The best part was when we went out to the Police van and got to explore inside.
Here is what students responded with when asked their favourite part of the visit:
Harmony, "Pretending I was a jail person in the back of the car where the baddies sit".
Levi, "When I was in the front seat, in the middle seat and the back. I liked all of it".
Elijah, "When I went in the back of the policeman's truck"
Eliannah, "sitting with the policeman's hat and driving".
Issac, "I love daddy."
Mya, "My favourite one was when you take the photo in the car with the police hat on.
Sean, "oh, the police car. I went in the back of it as well".
We will be continuing to explore different jobs within our community as apart of our Project Based learning this term.
