Year 6 of 2006-07 began the second stage of the project in January 2007 Rachel Wilson from Sudds and classroom teachers will again assist with the project The project will be led by the class using their ideas and concerns as the focus for their work The focus points chosen were: 1. Our feelings, emotions and thoughts about alcohol 2. Challenging young people ’ s attitudes towards alcohol Hook CP School

6 Project Diary February 2007 Our ideas Design project leaflets and posters Design desktop screen savers Produce a PowerPoint diary of project sessions Create a scrapbook and fact files To write, perform and record a play to be made into a DVD To plan and help produce a website Hook CP School

7 February 2007 We put stickers on the drawing to show where we thought alcohol could effect our bodies. eyes go foggy dizziness headaches slurred speech wobbly confused liver damage heart beats faster weak clumsy sickness Hook CP School

8 ALCOHOL How do you feel when you drink alcohol? Hook CP School

9 Beer goggles Beer goggles are a safe way to experience what it might be like if you drink too much alcohol. The lenses in the goggles made us feel dizzy, our peripheral vision was effected and we couldn ’ t walk straight. We had to search by feeling for the glue stick!! Hook CP School

10 Two scenarios- what do you think? The boy is too young The woman wants to make money He might think it is cool Maybe he is showing off Maybe he has been dared to buy alcohol Maybe she was driving when drunk She is blowing into an alcometer She could be feeling guilty and frightened She shouldn ’ t have had the last drink Hook CP School

11 Then and now Our project started in 2005 because the playing fields were littered with broken bottles. We nearly had to cancel our sports day. For awhile after our project, the bottles were cleared and the playing field was a safe place to play. We have again looked at this area, and alcoholic and non alcoholic drink bottles and cans are littering the village and field. We hope our knowledge about alcohol will make us take more care of our village. Hook CP School

12 Reaction Time Test First we did it quietly with a clear brain and then we repeated the test with a distracted brain because we were talking to each other. This showed us how alcohol would effect our reaction time. When working in pairs one person held a wooden block in front of them and the second person had to catch the block when it was dropped. This activity tested the catchers ’ reaction time. Hook CP School
