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!
We had a super time in school today celebrating Scandinavia Day and we were very pleased to welcome our governor Mrs Kaur who joined us for part of the day. Mrs Tracey dressed up in traditional Finnish costume and we enjoyed finding out all about traditional Scandinavian life; looking at different photographs and artefacts. The children danced together and enjoyed some tasty Scandinavian snacks including ‘Tiger cakes’ and ‘Gingerbread Men’. Our cook, Anita, also prepared a lovely Finnish lunch – cheese and spinach parcels with new potatoes and grated carrot salad.
