Phoning 999

CfE Experiences and Outcomes

I know of actions I can take to help someone in an emergency. HWB 2-42a.

1. Connecting the Learning -

• Ask the class if they know what the number for the Emergency
Services is?
• Ask them if they have ever had to phone 999?
• Tell them they are going to learn what they should do if they ever needed to phone 999. They will also learn about the consequences of making a Hoax Call.
2. Sharing the Learning Outcomes -

• I can give examples of when it is appropriate to phone 999.
• I can explain the consequences of phoning 999 when there is not a real emergency.
3. Active Learning - Use this resource to play the 999 activity. Children work in pairs or as individuals to look at the pictures and decide when they think it would be appropriate to phone 999. Use the teachers notes to aid the discussion.
4. Demonstrating Understanding - In groups, ask the class to create a cartoon strip/ story board or power point highlighting both the correct and inappropriate use of calling 999.
5. Review and Recall - Remind the class about the Learning Outcomes and ask them to give reasons as to why they should not phone 999 unless it was a real emergency.

This level also contains a plenary Quiz that includes questions relating to all four second level (1) activities. The quiz can be used to recap the key learning objectives and assess pupil knowledge.
