Safety in the Home Key Stage 1 & Key Stage 2

back to all products

Captain Callie and the Adventures of Bola

We know that common, unintended injuries can be predicted, managed and reduced. Storytelling, puppetry, comedy and song unite to give pupils the necessary skills to identify and manage risk correctly to reduce the amount of accidents and unintended injuries within the home and other frequented common areas.

Learning Objectives

  • Raise awareness of unintended injuries and how everyday activities need attention and appropriate care
  • Encourage pupils to take responsibility for their own safety when in the home
  • Develop greater understanding of risks including: spills, trip hazards, broken items, sharp objects, cleaning products, toasters, kettles, standing on furniture, prescription drugs, stairs and electrical items
  • Understand how to assess and balance risk benefits and risk harms
  • Develop pupils’ risk competence, awareness and assessment
