Today, Heywood's fire brigade came to visit Year 2 to burn the houses they had made to teach the children how and why the fire spread so quickly during the Great Fire of London. The firefighters went through all safety precautions and talked about why we should not do this at home. This was a controlled fire led by the fire brigade. The children also took turns in spraying the water hose!

Fire Brigade Visit

 

Today, Year 2 had a special visit from Heywood Fire Brigade. The children asked them questions about how fire safety has changed since the Great Fire of London. The children told them what they had learned about why the fire spread so quickly and burned so many buildings. Mrs Slack dressed up in the uniform while the fire fighters talked about why each piece of the uniform was necessary. The children then looked at the fire engine and got to sit in it! They had a great time!

LO- To know that the parish family listens to God’s word in the Gospels.

The children got into groups and acted out this part of the mass. The children showed how special this part of the Mass is through singing the Alleluia and holding the Bible up. The children said the responses during this part of the mass.

Today Class 6 looked at a range of artefacts. They discussed what they thought they were and what they were used for. The children had some fantastic ideas! The children learned that all of the artefacts were taken from the time of the Great Fire of London.

Wow Lesson- English

 

Today, the children found a clue in Class 6! This lead to clues outside in the playground. The clues finally lead to a spade in the ground. We helped to dig the ground until we found something wrapped up! Inside there was cheese, wine and a diary. After reading the diary, we found out that it belong to Samuel Pepys! Samuel lived a long time ago in London during the Great Fire. 

Happy New Year!
