Lift Off Day
It was a very exciting day in school on 19th January. The aim of the day was to allow children to experience what it would be like to work for the emergency services.
The Fire Service, Air Ambulance and Police spent the day in school talking to all the children about careers in the emergency services. The children also had an opportunity to go in a fire engine and try a firefighters hat and mask on.
Alex Fellowes was also in school all day. He told the story of Molly Williams, the first female registered firefighter.
In the afternoon, teachers and parents competed in a stretcher assault course, cheered on by the children.
'Star-books' was also open. Hot chocolate was served in the library to children whose parents came in to read with them.
Abdullah in Year 2 said 'It was a fun day' and 'We learnt about Molly Williams, who saved two children from a fire'. Mwalihasha in Year 2 said she was 'Amazed' by the fire engine. Jaden in Year 1 said 'The police came in to class to tell us about their job'. Amina in Year 1 thought the stretcher dash was 'very funny'. Samuel, in Year 5, wants to be a firefighter.
