The RNLI Water Safety resources have been added to for this summer.
“We’ve put together a suite of teaching ideas and materials to help you engage young people with essential – and lifesaving – water safety lessons in schools and youth groups.
You’ll find videos, guided discussions, problem solving activities – and more – specifically tailored for primary and secondary school aged children.
Younger children will collect virtual stamps as they learn; for older children it’s stamps in a virtual passport and learning through planning their own water safety campaigns. You can also check out a range of resources on maritime heritage.” (RNLI)
Watch the RNLI Water Safety Wednesdays which is a set of six water safety videos that have been broadcast over the spring with added teaching resources. They are suitable for children aged three to eleven and ideal for use in the classroom as a reminder on the run up to the summer holiday, or to send home for parents to watch along with their children. Each week a water safety expert called Liam explores different scenarios that show just how dangerous it can be to be near water. In the videos children learn about the tide and how it works, they cover the story of Grace Darling, what to do in an emergency and lots about the Royal National Lifeboat Institutions, with the opportunity to watch videos of them in action.
