0 – 5 minutes - Introduction

Tell the children what they are going to learn about today.

Do not say the words bogus caller or official. Say….

'We are going to talk about safety at the door whether it is the front door or the back door to your home.

We will be looking at the different kinds of people who may come to your door.

Once we have talked about safety at the door, we will do some activities to help you remember what you have learnt. After the lesson, you will be given an activity leaflet to take home.

Unfortunately there are strangers who try to trick people into thinking they are somebody else, try to trick their way into your house or try to trick you into buying things when calling at your door.

Explain that they should tell their parents, grandparents, elderly relatives or neighbours about doorstep callers and what to do.

So what's the aim of today's lesson?

It's to inform you about doorstep safety and what to do when somebody you don't know calls at your door.

In today's lesson we will learn about what we call bogus callers and rogue traders and what tricks they use when they call at your door.

I want you as well to be able to recall the 3 steps to stay safe from bogus callers and rogue traders.

We are going to talk about safety at the door whether it is the front door or the back door to your home and we will be looking at the different kinds of people who may come to your door.

Once we have talked about safety at the door, we will do some activities together to help you remember what you have learnt to try and break the lesson up and get you more involved.

After this lesson, you will be given an activity leaflet to take home and we hope you will tell your family all about what you have learned today.

There is also a website that you can go on either at home or in school which has fun games and activities all about today's lesson.
