People who help us
Our new topic is ‘People who help us’ and today we had our first visitor. Kerry is a paramedic on the air ambulance and she came to speak to us about her job. Kerry flies to help people in trouble and takes them to the hospital really quickly. Kerry showed us her uniform and she even let us try on her helmet!
In PSHE today we started talking about how we keep healthy at school. We talked about the exercise we do and the choices we make at lunchtime. Some of us visited the salad trolley today so we could add something healthy to our lunch. Can you spot our healthy choices?
Fire Engine visit
We celebrated Chinese New Year by inviting parents to join us for a pop-in session. We got very crafty with lots of Chinese themed activities. Thank you to all of the parents for joining us. In the afternoon we got to try some Chinese food, it was yummy! We also practised our Dragon dance around school using the dragon we had made at the pop-in session.
We had a visit from Karl and his guide dog Bilko. We learnt all about Karl and how Bilko helps him. Karl told us how Bilko was trained and the harness that he uses when he is working. He also told us that we must not stroke a guide dog when they have their harness on, we must always ask the owner first. Then we all got to have a little stroke, he was so soft!
We had a visit from Caroline, who works for the RNLI. She told us all about the lifeboats and lifeguards. She showed us the flags that we see on the beach and what they mean. Some of us got to dress up as a lifeguard! Caroline also told us how dangerous inflatables can be in the sea.
This afternoon our outdoor area was destroyed! We had to work together to find out who had turned all of our tables upside down and left everything on the floor. We used fingerprints and clues to work out that Mrs Gaymer was the culprit.
Today Sarah the paramedic and Lloyd the turtle came to visit us with their new Ambulance. They showed us lots of exciting equipment. Some of us got to test out the ECG machine and measure our heartbeats. We all went outside and got to see inside the Ambulance. We also listened to the siren and some children got to sit in the drivers seat!
