Newham Junior Citizens

Year 5 visited to the former Tate and Lyle factory offices for an afternoon of activities to promote safe, positive choices. However, to make positive choices, we need to be well-informed. 

Representatives of the uniformed services such as London Fire Brigade, the R.N.L.I. and Coastguard, the Metropolitan Police, St. John’s Ambulance and the Environment Agency led the children in role play and other practical scenario

Children were taken through potentially life-saving scenarios such as ‘stranger danger’, contacting the emergency services, fire awareness and safety. Children were split into teams, to collect important information and demonstrate effective decision making.

This is part of a community programme based on a number of long-term partnerships, centred around the London Borough of Newham, where Thames Refinery and Plaistow Wharf are located.
