Wessex Lifebus Visit - Parents Workshop Thursday 3 October 2.50pm
Life Education Wessex & Thames Valley is an independent and self-supporting branch of a national charity which provides health, well-being and drug education to children aged 3 – 13 years.
Our aim is to help equip young people with the knowledge, skills and self-confidence to form positive healthy attitudes and make healthy choices. We support schools, parents and community groups and our programmes help to meet National Curriculum and government guidelines for health and drug education.
Young people are facing ever-increasing risks to their health through poor diet, drinking alcohol, smoking and misusing drugs. Our fun and interactive series of age appropriate programmes help children to understand the wonders of the human body and how to look after it.
Our experienced and specially trained Educators help Key Stage 2 children (Years 3 to 6) to consider the effects and risks associated with the use of drugs, including medicines, alcohol and tobacco. In addition, children learn about choices that can affect health and well-being, skills of friendship and how to cope with bullying and peer pressure.
Through the use of group work, puppets, circle time discussion, drama techniques such as role play and hot-seating, music, exercise, electronic models and a variety of audio/visual materials, all children are encouraged to participate.
Parents’ sessions and workshops are often organised so that you can find out what happens inside the Mobile Classroom.
