This term, P2 have been finding out how to keep a baby safe, especially as babies develop and reaching new milestones and facing new safety issues. They really enjoyed Oliver’s visit with his mum, where Sally shared with the children how she keeps Oliver safe. Everyone really enjoyed their visit and big sister Chloe joined us near the end to demonstrate Oliver’s crawling. The children realised how vulnerable babies are, how dependent they are on their family and how they must never be left alone.
In addition the children enjoyed sharing their knowledge and experience of home safety tips: always place a baby on their back when they are going to sleep, not leaving hot beverages on the edge of a table, keeping toxic chemicals out of reach and removing potential electrical hazards. Also discovering how mums-to-be help to keep themselves and their babies healthy during pregnancy.
Through learning how to keep a baby safe, the children appreciated that they can play a part in keeping themselves and others safe. Whether it is in the park, crossing the road, at school or at home. the children discussed the hazards and strategies how to avoid them.
