P7.8. Describe TWO (2) of activities or experience which encourage children's awareness of their own and others safety.
Within my KS1 practice another way we show children aware of safety and others is at circle time. Circle time in my placement is the time to sit and socialise and speak to their friends on their row.

In my setting we also have a volunteer that comes into the setting to speak to the children, who speaks about keeping save
