The Halloween and Bonfire night period is traditionally extremely busy for the emergency services as the demand for services rises significantly. Screams are expected during the Halloween season, but Halloween screams should be the result of innocent fun – and not because of fires or injuries that could have easily been avoided. There are many extra hazards to be cautious of around Halloween time. This lesson plan accompanies the 'Halloween Safety' presentation which gives advice on how to stay safe this Halloween season. Halloween and Bonfire Night also sees a spike in anti-social behaviour, with people believing they can get away with bad behaviour just because it is Halloween. The presentation also addresses the issues of ASB around this period and using a powerful Police film, it encourages young people to think about how they would feel if it happened to them.
How To Use
This lesson plan provides guidance on how to deliver the 'Halloween Safety' lesson. The presentation can be used during a PSHE session to advise and inform students or there are also additional suggested activities within this lesson plan, which can be used throughout other areas of the curriculum to expand and enhance the puils learning and understanding.
