Author and firefighter visit

On Tuesday 27th February, we were very lucky to receive a visit from local author Angela Chater. She visited Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.  The children loved hearing her book- Stanley's Incredible Journey. Once Angela finished reading her book, children then participated in a workshop to inspire a love a reading. 


As well as this, our Year 4 children had a team of local firefighter them. The firefighters discussed fire safety and highlighted the importance of children knowing escape routes during different scenarios that they might encounter at home and the procedures for reporting a fire when discovered. They also identified fire hazards in the home and learned about the correct place to position smoke detectors (hall and landing). Finally, children practised the stop, drop and roll and discussed why this was effective in putting out a fire
