On Monday Year Two had a very special visit from the Lewisham Fire Brigade. They came along with two of their fire engines, which they drove onto the playground!
2T were lucky enough to go outside first and have a look at the fire engine in more detail. The children got to see all the equipment behind the shutters, climb on board and have a look at all the gadgets. Then everyone got to try a helmet on. Once the children had climbed out the other side they each had a turn using the hoses. It was a lot of fun.
After this we all went inside and met Mark and Mustafa, who taught us all about fire safety.
This week we have worked really hard in math finding fractions of amounts. To encourage you to keep practising the rule ‘divide by the denominator, multiply by the numerator’, your homework this week is just that! Don’t forget to do a lot of reading and keep practising your times tables!
