Our learning theme this term is 'Who Can Help Us?' We will be thinking all about superheroes from local heroes in our community to caped crusaders!
We can't wait to start our theme by sharing the adventures of Supertato with you!
We have transformed our role play area into a '999 Emergency Headquarters' which the children have loved helping to set up and play in!
We had a lovely day celebrating World Book day dressed as some of our favourite characters. We also created our very own Supertato's.
Visit from PCSO Knox
As part of our learning "Who can help us?" PCSO Knox came to visit us with his Police car.
He brought us lots of different hats that are worn by different types of Police officers, that we are able to try on. We were able to go and see his police car and even put the siren on and the lights. He had lots of different things in the boot of the car that he might need to use to help someone. How many can you remember?
We talked about all the different ways the Police can help us and the children asked and answered PCSO KNox's questions really well.
Fire Engine and Ambulance visit
This afternoon we were very lucky to have a visit from a Fire engine and Ambulance and their crew. The Crew on the fire engine showed us the special equipment and clothes that they need to wear when they go to a fire. We were able to have a go using the fire hose if we wanted to - it was really powerful.
The crew on the ambulance showed us some of their special equipment, some of us used the device to show our heart rate and oxygen levels. We also had a go at using the stethoscope and their special torch that they use to look at people eyes.
Our JCB Visit
As part of our learning “Who can help us?” We had a visit from a JCB. The driver who operates the JCB told us all about the different parts of the JCB and the sort of jobs that they do to help people. He told us about the different size scoops that are on the JCB and how they are used to move things and dig holes. One of the main jobs of this digger is for digging holes for the electricity poles that need to go in the ground. We talked about the importance of some of the things they wear like the high-viz jackets, hard hats and steel toe capped boots to help keep them safe when they are working.
