Attendance Awards

Well done to all of the children in reception who have received an attendance award. Keep up the great work!

Police Visit

This week, we received a visit from the police. They told us all about what they do to help us in our community. We even got the chance to dress up as police officers.

Charlie the Firefighter

 We have been reading ‘Charlie the Firefighter’. We were able to retell the story using puppets and props in the small world area. We used cards to order the story and talked about key events.

Charlie said that firefighters need to be fit and work together. We made obstacle courses outside and worked together to complete them in the quickest time.

 

Visit from the Fire Brigade

 We were very lucky to have a visit from the fire brigade. They told us about the jobs they do and how they help people. We talked about what we would do if there was a fire at home and the importance of having a smoke alarm.

They brought the fire engine onto our yard and we all had a chance to take a close look and even hop onboard. The firemen showed us the equipment they carry on the fire engine and told us when they might use it. We all had a go at using the hose.

Community Visit

 We went on a walk in our local area and identified people who help us within our community.

When we returned to school we were able to talk about people in our community and how they might have helped us in past or how they might help us if needed. We made a simple map to locate them.
