Alcohol Awareness.

In Year 5 the children have been considering the following question

Do I know commonly available substances and drugs and the impact of these?’.

As part of our learning we have considered the laws on alcohol consumption including –
• it is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to buy alcohol.
• Many adults choose not to drink alcohol.

How does alcohol affect the body?

As the level of alcohol in the bloodstream increases, it may cause an effect on a person’s behaviour.

Short term:
slower reaction times;
increased risk-taking;
judgement becomes blurred;
poor co-ordination.

This is why it is dangerous to drink alcohol before driving a car.

Long term:
Vitamin B deficiency disease, beri-beri, higher risk of liver damage such as cirrhosis and liver cancer and heart problems.

The following link will take you to a clip that shows the effects of alcohol on young people.
