On the 22nd of June we (Class 4) went on the most amazing and fun trip that you could ever imagine. This trip was to an army barracks in Harrogate and the event was called crucial crew. We learnt lots of important things to stop you from getting arrested and to keep you safe. We did all sorts of role play to learn this. We learnt:
What to do if you smell gas
What happens when you drink alcohol
To stay away from pylons and electricity
How to survive a house fire
What to do if someone has fallen in a river
How to stay off drugs
Why to not shoplift
How you can stop abuse and what types of abuse there are
How to stay safe on the internet
Why you should wear your seatbelt
We also went to a disco. Someone was handing out sweets so we all took one. Then we sat down and learnt how to not take things from strangers. WHOOPS! Luckily it was only an actor. Phew.
I thought crucial crew was a brilliant afternoon and the best way to learn things. I am going to remember this trip and not forget anything that was said because I might end up in one of these situations in the future.
