The Get Gas Safe website makes it easy for teachers to equip their pupils aged 9 to 11 with the information that they need to stay safe using engaging age-appropriate resources.
Every year carbon monoxide poisoning, gas leaks, fires and explosions cause deaths and injuries which could be prevented if everybody followed a few simple safety precautions.
The programme is supported by Electrical Safety First and RoSPA.
The site contains an interactive house, free videos and lesson plans and activity sheets.
Interactive house: An interactive house activity which includes a spot the hazard challenge and a gas safety quiz.
Lesson plan and activity sheets: Free curriculum-linked lesson plan, activity sheets, parents’ leaflet and stickers.
Meet the Perils videos: Meet the Peril family and find out all about risk, hazards at home and gas safety with a set of free videos.
This would be a useful site for KS2 teachers covering this important aspect of PSHE.
The site is free to access, but you will need to register for an account to see the resources.
