PRIMARY school pupils took part in safety challenges at Whittlesey Fire Station yesterday to improve their understanding of everyday safety issues.
Year Five pupils from Park Lane Primary and Nursery School, Whittlesey were faced with a range of safety activities, including how to evacuate from a burning building, seatbelt safety, food safety and basic first aid.
They were judged on how sensibly they dealt with each scenario.
Sarah Gregory, Year Five teacher at Park Lane said: “The fire safety zone training was an excellent opportunity for children to learn about safety in everyday scenarios.
“The children rehearsed ways to keep themselves safe and recognised potential danger in their lives.
