This week, Reception have been learning about why we have Remembrance Sunday and the significance of the red poppy. In particular, we have been thinking about bravery and talking about the times that we have been brave, even though we have felt very scared.
We also had some very exciting visitors who have to be brave every single day- fire officers!
Some of the fire officers from our local station came to show us around their fire engine. They showed us how they use their life saving equipment in an emergency situation and spoke to us about how they keep themselves safe in a fire. The fire officers also stressed the importance of working together as part of a team. The children asked lots of interesting questions and listened very well to what was being said.
To finish off, we all had a go at turning on the fire hose and knocking over the cone with the water!
Next week, we will be celebrating World Nursery Rhyme Week, focussing on one rhyme each day, and we will be joining the rest of the school in Anti Bullying Week.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend,
The Reception Team
