Finley has brought in his Elf today which was sent to him by Santa Claus. The Elf’s name is Freddo. He is sitting on top our our new magic blackboard watching us!
We loved listening to Nanny read she was such a good story teller. She answered our questions and told us that her and M have a secret fairy garden! Wow!
Thank you so much for coming Nanny. 😀
On Tuesday morning we went to Congleton Fire Station.
He explained Fire Officers help put out fires and make sure people are safe in their houses by checking smoke detectors. He told us to check our Smoke detectors at home to make sure they work.
He also told us about the Jaws of life that they use open up cars when people may be stuck inside.
We were allowed to hold the hose pipe.
There are grids on the floor with an F and H on them, which stands for fire fire hydrant. Near it is usually a yellow marker post to help the Fire Brigade find them. The hose pipes can reach 1000 metres.
Fire men live near the station in case an alarm is raised. They work 4 days and nights on. Then get 4 days off.
Fire Officer a Rich showed us a Hooligan tool. They use it break doors open.
Thank you all our helpers who drove us and stayed with us. We couldn’t have gone without your help. 👍
This shows you that when you let children experience things in a safe and exciting way learning truly is “AMAZING!”.
Playing with the sparklers was a great experience. The safety talk before really helped the children to enjoy them and know what to do if they didn’t want to hold them anymore.
Our number one rule when in Miss Irwin’s class is always be safe. Miss Irwin planned a whole day of fire activities to make us think about how to be safe on bonfire night.
Fire Day has been wonderful. It started with us watching Fireman Sam’s video. He taught us how to be safe around bonfires and when using sparklers.
As part of our topic Fire and Ice we are going to visit Congleton Fire Station on Tuesday.
A letter went home in our bags. Parents you need to complete the permission slip and return it ASAP.
