Fire Safety in Year 5 🔥

Year 5 were very lucky to have a visit from the fire service this morning. We looked at the potential fire risks around the house including candles, non branded phone charges, open fires and overloaded multiple plug sockets. We also looked at what to do if we experience fire, including Stop, Drop and Rollas well as Get out, Stay out and phone 999. We were also reminded to test our fire arms weekly. Thank you to Gemma, all the children had a fantastic time! 👨‍🚒🔥

Year 2 Fire Safety Talk

This morning, we were visited by Gemma, a fire fighter from Morriston Fire Station. Gemma came into class to teach us all about ways to stay safe around fire. She read us a story about Tanni, and we talked about the dangers of playing with matches and lighters. We also learned about how to call the fire brigade, and ways that smoke alarms can help us to stay safe. The children participated in the discussion with lots of enthusiasm, and some of us even got to try on the protective clothing worn by fire fighters. We then enjoyed completing some activities which tested our knowledge in our Tanni fire safety activity books that Gemma gave us. What a fun-filled, informative morning. The Year 2s are now fire safety experts!

Colour Changing Cocktails.

Wow! What a busy week.

Reception have been learning all about the properties of Ice in our STEM week sessions. Just for fun the children chose different ice cubes made of juice and built their own ice towers in a cup. We then watched them melt!

Fantastic Fine Motor Skills

Throughout the year, the Year 2 children have enjoyed further developing their fine motor skills through lots of exciting activities, such as Cheerios challenges, using tweezers and printing to name just a few. This week we decided to improve our fine motor skills by threading patterns on the fences outside. The area is looking really colourful, and the children have shown great dexterity. The children are looking forward to more exciting physical activities over the next few weeks.

Building Bridges.

The nursery children used their problem solving skills today to build bridges across the construction area. They worked as a team, using planks of wood and blocks to construct bridges that they were able to walk across. They then used their balancing skills to walk across their constructions. Gwaith da nursery! Think we have some future engineers!
