We had a very special assembly today in school, the RNLI lifeguards Liam and Rory came in to talk to us about keeping safe in water. They showed us the different flags used at the beach and what they mean- red means you're not allowed in the water at all, red and yellow shows the safe area to swim, black and white are surfing areas and the orange wind sock means no inflatables in the water.
A lifeguard between the red and yellow flag will need a rescue tube which can hold up to 3 adults, sun block, sunglasses, sun hat, drinking water, a walkie talkie and of course a first aid kit.
A lifeguard out on a jet ski will need a helmet, a life jacket, a whistle, a wet suit with short legs making it easy to run in and a Walkie talkie.
Rory told us all about a rip current- this is where the water can carry you away from the beach. It is important you don't go out too far so you can walk against the current.
If you have a body board, hold onto this as it will keep you floating. Then you would wave your hand and shout for help!
If you do get stuck in a rip current, try to swim to the side of it as the water will be calmer.
Never swim in after your friend if they are stuck in a current, go get the lifeguard. If lifeguards are not there, ring 999 or 112 to contact the coast guards.
Lifeguards use the saying 'slip, slap, slop' to keep them safe from the sun. You slip of a long sleeved top, slap on a wide brimmed hat and slop on factor 50 sun screen.

This morning we had the Glo Germ light box in our classroom to test how well we can wash our hands. We rubbed a special gel on our hands so we could see it under the UV light. We washed our hands with soap and water to try to wash all the gel off, then we put them under the light again. If our hands glowed it told us that we do not wash our hands properly. Some people were very good at washing their hands and they had no glowing bits!
