Life Education Van


The whole school went out to the car park for a lesson this week - thankfully, they could shelter in the Life Education Van with its teacher Sarah (& Harold the giraffe).

Oak class went in to talk about choices we make each day, about how to be assertive in saying 'no' when being pressured and to learn about the harmful effects of different substances.
