We had a surprise visit today from the Didcot Fire Station ... and they even brought their fire engine to show us all of the cool equipment inside! It was super exciting.
First, they gave us a talk about how we shouldn't be afraid of fire, as it has many good benefits such as keeping us warm, giving us light and it can cook our food. But, there was a very clear message that fire should not be played with and that if we do get fire on us, we should STOP, DROP and ROLL to safely put the flames out.
Some of us practised this at the front of the hall whilst Miss Morgan got to try on their fire safety clothing.
Next they taught us a song which goes:
'Matches, matches never touch. They can hurt you very much.'
We learnt that if you are the first person to hear the fire alarm, you need to shout 'FIRE FIRE' to wake up your household and to exit the building safely. Once you are in a safe place, you need to call 999 for help.
Did you know that if you do not have a smoke detector in your house; you can go to your local fire station and ask for one to be fitted for free?
Let's all help to keep each other safe.
Outdoor Classroom Day
24th May 2019
Our second Outdoor Classroom Day was another great success, and this time the sun was shining!
In the morning we played lots of games such as What's the time Mr Wolf, Duck Duck Goose, Heads down thumbs up and with the parachute. We then went a mini beast hunt around the garden to see what creatures we could find and in which habitats. The children loved having a picnic lunch on the Junior field; spending time with friends and siblings and playing outdoor games with the equipment. After, each child hammered one bottle top onto the shed to help make a colourful butterfly mural and then did some seed planting before home time.

Mini First Aid Training
24th September 2018
On Monday, the children were lucky enough to become trained First Aiders!
They all took part in an interactive mini first aid course delivered by First For Safety, and were taught how to check the airways and breathing of an unconscious person. They had lots of fun trying out their new skills on the manikins and putting each other (and their teacher) into the recovery position! The children were also told how to contact the emergency services for help as well as learning about choking and burns.
19th September 2018
Today we talked about how we can help to keep ourselves and our friends safe during outdoor playtime. As a class we came up with some fantastic ideas and created some beautiful illustrations to remind us of the playground rules.

A massive thank you to everyone who contributed to our Roald Dahl Day by creating these amazing props!
