We had a fantastic day celebrating Chinese New Year. Our governor, Councillor Alan Clark came to visit and join in the fun. We practised Chinese dragon dancing, tasted Chinese food and had a go at using chopsticks, learned about different Chinese customs and handled different Chinese things such as special decorations. We all had a wonderful time!
Today we welcomed the firefighters to school. They brought their fire engine with them and showed us all their fire fighting equipment. The children were able to climb up inside the cab and listen to the sirens. Afterwards, the fire fighters came into class and showed us their special clothes that protect them in a fire. We learned such a lot and had a great time.
We loved it when Police Officer Tom came to visit today as part of our theme about people who help us. Tom talked to all of the children about being a police officer. All of the children had chance to go outside and try on some real police uniform including the helmets (they were very heavy!) We had to cover our ears when Tom turned on the sirens – they were sooo loud! Most of all we loved sitting in the police care and beeping the horn. What a lot of fun!
