A young man is walking along the top of a wall and a resident comes over and shouts at him to get down
As part of a street training session lead by Lottie, using a traffic cone as a mega phone is demonstrated as a good idea, you try it , shouting ‘smelly slippers’ a resident on a balcony above is very angry and upset by this, they shout at you in a very angry way.

Year six children at Gloucester Primary School Peckham
If the police arrive and block off a place – like when some one was shot at the bus stop, if the police tell you not to go into that place don’t go there.
If you are near to lots of people nothing will happen to you
Walk with people who you know
Look left and right when you cross the road
Don’t listen to strangers or talk to them
Don’t talk to people who are on drugs
Listen to adults when crossing the street

We went from school to Peckham Square thinking of ways to have more fun in the streets. When we were on the green path a big old English sheep dog came up to me and I patted and stroked it. It seemed friendly. We didn't know where its owner was though and Holly and the other adults were worried about whether it was safe. We agreed that it is safer to ask dog's owners before playing with them because you just don't know what might make them nervous.
