As part of Year 4’s PSHE topic this term the children have been discussing the risks of smoking. During the class discussion we spoke about why people might start smoking, what the risks of smoking can be and also why people might find it difficult to stop.
Why do people smoke?
Kezi: they might think that it looks cool
Evie: people might try smoking just to see what it’s like but then they become addicted
Harry: stress can cause people to smoke because it relaxes them
Niah: peer pressure
Why do people find it difficult to stop smoking?
Sophie: they are not aware of the risks involved with smoking so they choose to carry on
Poppy: they enjoy it
Brooke Ba: becomes a habit for them
Evie: they are addicted to what is inside the cigarettes
