People who help us
We have been learning all about people who help us. Today we were visited by Dagenham firefighters and their fire engine! We had lots of fun learning new facts, asking questions and we even got to sit in the fire engine! We had such an exciting time!
We have been learning all about people who help us. Today we were visited by our community police officer Muna. We had lots of fun learning new facts about her job and the animals that help them too. We were very excited to try on some of the uniform she gets to wear as well.
One morning we noticed that it was very frosty outside so we decided to investigate. We discussed that as the weather was so cold outside it had turned the water to ice and there was frost on the grass. The children went around the Outdoor Classroom to look at the ice and frost. We noticed the pond had frozen over, we made footprints on the frosty grass and it was so cold we could see our breath! The children could tell me when the sun comes back out it will break the ice into pieces and the ice will turn back to water.
As part of Remembrance Day we each made a poppy that was then displayed around our school.
To further help the children to learn about Remembrance Day we set up a trench experience, so they could imagine what it was like for a soldier in the First World War. The children had the opportunity to experience how the trenches may have smelt, the noises that might have been heard, the sights seen and a little of what it was like to be in a trench. This experience helped the children to understand how the soldiers may have felt and what it was like for them. The children really enjoyed the experience and it really supported their understanding.
