KS1 - Little Life Savers

KS1 - Little Life Savers


Get your pupils learning outside the classroom, working together, investigating and exploring, in the Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service Training and Safety Centre.

Little Life Savers has been specifically developed to introduce six- and seven-year-olds to ways of staying safe and knowing what to do in an emergency. By taking on roles within the fire service, they will explore a 999 control centre, understand how to cross the road safely, learn how to stop, drop and roll and many more exciting activities!

This programme is the foundation level that we offer here at the Safety Centre, delivering key safety messages to KS1 learners. The visit and resources are designed to encourage learners’ current and future moral, cultural, mental and physical development. At Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service we aim to prepare all learners for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life, promoting the development of knowledge, understanding and skills they need to be educated citizens.
