On Friday 4th May, Year 2 had a Fire Safety talk lead by Lauren from the London Fire Brigade. The children learned how to spot hazards in the home and what they can do to prevent a fire. They role-played a plan of escape in case of a fire at home. Did you know that there are 102 fire stations in London and that a fire engine can get to a fire within 6 minutes? How amazing is that!
Lauren was very good at answering the children’s questions and now Year 2 can share their knowledge about what to do in case of a fire.
On Monday 5th March 2018, Year 2 had a visit from the world famous Florence Nightingale. In topic we have been learning about significant people so she came to tell us all about her life and the wonderful things she did to improving nursing across the world.
We learnt a lot about her life – Did you know she even had a pet owl which she kept in her pocket as she worked! We had time to explore some different the artefacts she brought from the past. Some of us even had the opportunity to dress up as soldiers and nurses from the Crimean War.
When we got back to class we wrote some wonderful recounts of her visit. We included what we had seen and which parts we enjoyed most about her visit. We hope she can come back next year!
