Year 4 Robins have been learning about features of a comic strip. They said the following features were important; design, colour, short snappy titles, speech bubbles, thinking bubbles and key characters.
Robins then created a comic strip based on their PSHE lesson of climate change and being environmentally friendly.
The children suggested the following facts could be included in their strips:
► Switch lights off when not in use
► Ride a bike to school instead of being driven to school
► Read a book instead of using a computer
► Recycle rubbish
The app children used was Comic Life on the iPads.
The children were aware of the common dangers around us. We don not always see them as “dangers” but we know to be careful.
• empty buildings
• building sites
We also discussed SAFE people and SAFE places. People we could go to for help, for example, Police men/women, teachers or people who work in SAFE buildings like those working in a school, doctors surgery and shops.
We also discussed gangs or groups of people who hang around together.
The children discussed what they might encounter with the gangs and how gangs can be seen to be intimidating. We also discussed what we could do if we felt uneasy and referred back to the SAFE people we could go to.
