Year 6 had an exciting opportunity to get involved with Junior Citizen. This initiative, run in partnership by Barking and Dagenham Council and the Metropolitan Police, gives children who are about to start secondary school advice on a range of subjects in a fun and entertaining way.
Organisations including the Metropolitan Police, London Fire Brigade, London Ambulance Service, The Royal National Lifeboat Institute, and Transport for London provide bitesize sessions on issues such as staying safe near water or home fire safety.
Each day, youngsters faced a different challenging workshop and were awarded points for how they handled the scenario and interacted with each other. At the end of the scheme, the team with the most points was crowned the winner.
