Upper primary: age 7-11

Explore our comprehensive suite of water safety teaching activities and learning resources, aimed at older primary aged children.

These activities teach children the RNLI’s four fundamental water safety lessons as they collect virtual badges for their Water Safety Passport.

Through play, video and discussion, they’ll learn how to plan for a trip near water, what to take and what to do, and how to identify possible dangers by rivers, lakes and the sea.

Water Safety Passport 2 gives children a solid grounding in our key water safety lessons – with additional activities to choose from, depending on what’s most relevant for your class or group.
