A new Health and Safety Authority (HSA) safety resource for Primary schools entitled Under the Sink is now available to download on the HSA website.
This ready to use resource is designed to raise awareness amongst younger children of the dangers of household chemicals. Under the Sink is a short, clear, online presentation, designed for use on classroom whiteboards and comes with useful teacher guidelines, including a lesson plan and suggestions for follow up cross-curricular activities. While the resource is most closely linked to the SPHE curriculum objectives for First and Second classes, with a little adaption, it links with curriculum objectives at other class levels and can also be used by teachers of Infant or Senior classes as an awareness-raising tool. This resource is also available as Gaeilge.
