Road Safety – Staying safe when you’re out and about

This week we have talked about how it is getting darker earlier and about staying safe near roads. We have a Pelican Crossing by school. Remember to press the button, WAIT (look across the road to spot the Red Man standing still). It’s safe to cross when you hear the beeping sound and look across for the Green Man walking. Make sure that cars stop before you cross! Also, hold your adult’s hand! Always Stop, Look, Listen and Think. Don’t forget to ‘Be Bright & Be Seen’ in the dark.Watch the hedgehogs road safety advice:

London’s Burning!

Can you sing ‘London’s Burning’

Use these lyrics (song words) to help you:

 ‘London’s Burning’

London’s Burning, London’s Burning.

Fetch the engine, fetch the engine.

Fire! Fire!

Fire! Fire!

Pour on water, pour on water.

Build London! New London!

Brick houses. Stone tiling.

Wide streets! Tall churches!

And Saint Paul’s will have a dome on!

Firefighters visit

On Thursday 28th September, we had a visit from Tony, Andy, Dale and Dave who are firefighters from Smethwick Fire Station on Stony Lane. They led a presentation about The Great Fire of London and Fire Safety. We learnt about how people dealt with fire in the past and what we should do nowadays.They had told us in detail about all of the amazing and important jobs that firefighters do. They gave lots of great advice about how to stay safe, what to do in an emergency such as ringing 999, knowing your address, how important smoke alarms are and when to ‘STOP! DROP! ROLL!’… We even acted that out and somebody had to dress up in all of the heavy kit that firefighters wear…!
If you would like advice on fitting smoke alarms, parents can ring Smethwick Fire Station – General Enquiries on: 01213807533

On Friday 29th September, we visited the stunning Aston Hall. We had a fantastic guide called Laura who helped us learn while we explored the beautiful building. There was dressing up, discovering different kinds of rooms and things to make. Take a look at the photos. Try to name the rooms and what you learnt about the Great Fire of London in each one.
