Organisers by the Fenland Community Safety Partnership, the 'Safety Zone' activity days also taught children about road, product and internet safety.
Sharon Dove, organiser from Fenland District Council, said "Safety Zone continues to be fantastic success with hundreds of pupils across Fenland taking part every year.
