Why visit SkillZONE?
SkillZONE is a state-of-the-art life size village. It is a fully interactive learning environment to teach people of all ages how to recognise dangerous situations and stay safe.
There are 16 zones, which will cover a range of scenarios including road, rail and water safety, an internet cafe, as well as opportunities to cover home and personal safety.
The new SkillZONE centre is committed to making a safer Gloucestershire by educating children and young people in safety issues. We not only make them aware of the dangers and consequences, but also allow them to make their own choices about safety so they learn from the experience.
Queen Margaret Primary School Teacher, Daina Kelly says: “I wish we could of stayed longer. It is a definate ‘must’ to come again as I think all children would benefit from a visit.”
“The resources are so realistic the children can realise for themselves the situations and it is hard hitting enough for them to remember the lessons. I bet they won’t stop talking about this.”
The centre will be providing resources for key stages to help teachers in their learning environments. Some are available through the links below, others will be available to download soon.
