Life Education Van 2019
Harold and the Life Education Van came to visit Lytchett Matravers Primary School. The Life Education Van is a charity that provides health, well-being and drug education to children aged 3-13 years.
Their aim is to help equip young people with the knowledge, skills and self-confidence to form positive healthy attitudes and make healthy choices.
All the children participated in a fun and interactive lesson, which is part of a series of age appropriate lessons, to understand the wonders of the human body and how to look after it. All the children love going into the mobile classroom, learning and having fun at the same time. In Reception, Year 1 and 2 they learnt about keeping their bodies healthy, feelings, being a good friend and the safe use of medicines. Then the older children in Key Stage 2 (Years 3-6) think and discussed the effects and risks associated with the use of drugs, including medicines, alcohol and tobacco. They also learnt about choices that can affect health and well-being, skills of friendships and how to cope with bullying and peer pressure.
All the children love going into the mobile classroom, learning and having fun at the same time. They children enjoyed their sessions especially meeting Harold the giraffe!
