Empire class took part in an assembly to promote safer cycling ran by a Youth Engagement Officer for Kent police.
The children were shown a short video which flitted between a car driving too fast with the driver distracted and a groups of boys doing wheelies at traffic, which resulted in a car crashing into a mannequin on a bicycle. After the video, a ‘real’ crash scene was revealed with the crashed bike and ‘actors’ as the casualty/driver/police officer/paramedic. This sent a really powerful image to the children! This was then followed up with discussions around how the casualty could have kept safe, and an interactive exercise of ‘guess the stopping distance of a car at 30mph’ with a few volunteers.

Healthy Eating and First Aid Awareness at Canterbury College
As part of Canterbury College’s Collaborative Schools Social Action Project, some of Empire Class attended two workshops: Healthy Eating and First Aid Awareness . We had great fun learning about keeping our teeth healthy; we also learnt about our blood and what it consists of. We made 'blood' using everyday food items. Which part of our blood do you think the Cheerios represent? Why do you think we added salt?We used dressings on each other to help us know how to stop a bleeding wound.
