This week we will be practising our shelter drill. We will be explaining to the children that just as we sometimes practice fire drills so that we’ll know what to do in case there is a fire, we are now going to practice staying inside to protect us from any trouble outside the classroom. Should questions arise about why we would need to do this, we will make sure we use age appropriate responses.
When the announcement is made that the shelter drill is in place we will ask the children to come and sit down in a corner of the room whilst we read a story very quietly. When we are informed via the PA system that the drill is over, we will return to our session as normal.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions regarding this.
