We were very lucky in Y2 to have a visit from the Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service.
We learned about things in our homes that could be dangerous.
We then learned how to check if a fire alarm was working. (You press the button with a long broom stick)
A film showed us how to escape safely, if there was a fire in our home.
Then everyone had a chance to dress in fire fighters clothes.
We learned to crawl on the floor because the smoke rises above you.
I learned not to keep the charger in the phone when you are asleep.
I learned to shout FIRE FIRE!
I learned that the fire fighter jacket is made out of Kevlar.
We learned that after the great fire of London, the King wanted people to put out fires.
I learned that when the fire alarm goes off, you go straight out of the house and never go back in.
As you can see, we learned lots from the session!
