Are we there yet? Getting ready for local fieldwork Our Risk Assessment
Learning Objectives <ul><li>To be able to identify risks to us in our local environment </li></ul><ul><li>To be able to think of ways to reduce identified risks </li></ul><ul><li>To know ways to stay safe when working out of doors </li></ul><ul><li>Discuss these learning objectives. </li></ul><ul><li>Do you know what they mean? </li></ul><ul><li>Could you say this in a better way? </li></ul><ul><li>What do you think the success criteria might be? </li></ul><ul><li>Geography – sense of place, vocabulary development </li></ul><ul><li>Literacy -Speaking and Listening & Note taking </li></ul><ul><li>Citizenship & ECM- Staying safe & taking responsibility for ourselves </li></ul>
Look, listen, think, discuss…… <ul><li>You are going to see some photographs of places we will be visiting. Listen while you are told something about each place then spend a couple of minutes discussing the key dangers or risks with your partner and what you could do to keep safe. </li></ul><ul><li>Note down your key findings. Listen to ideas from others and edit your notes if you want to change or add something. </li></ul>
Notes for teachers <ul><li>The following slides are examples of what you might use and how you might present them as examples of what a ‘risk’ is and what ‘action’ might be taken. </li></ul><ul><li>Use these or similar examples to develop understanding and then insert your own images showing potential hazards of your intended trip. </li></ul>
www.multimap.com www.streetmap.co.uk www.earthgoogle.com <ul><li>Use an internet mapping programme to locate places to be visited instead of or as well as your own pictures. </li></ul><ul><li>Choose either aerial / map view or hybrid (both). </li></ul><ul><li>Sometimes a different scale and / or view can highlight different risks </li></ul>
What are the risks ? What action can we take to stay safe? Risk : falling over on bumpy, hard car park surface. Action : walk rather than run. Look carefully. Risk : steep, slippery slope Action : keep clear. Risk : moving cars Action : Look, listen & think. Stay close to adults N 1

Now write your own risk assessment from your notes <ul><li>Use the writing frame provided or design your own </li></ul><ul><li>Check with your partner that you are writing the advice as clearly as possible </li></ul><ul><li>Are you identifying the names of landscape features correctly? </li></ul>
