This week Year 2 were visited by the London Fire Brigade.
They shared lots of tips on how to stay safe in a fire, and told us some rhymes to help us remember these tips. For example:
Matches and lighters
Please don’t touch
They can hurt you very very much.
Touch the door so you’re sure.
On the way out give a shout.
Close the door for 20 minutes more.
Under the smoke so you don’t choke.
Don’t hide, go outside!
Call 999, you will be fine.
Practise your fire plan whenever you can.
We got to dress up as firefighters too!
We learned about how important it is to have a fire alarm at home, and to check the battery EVERY WEEK! The fire alarm was very noisy…
The firefighters explained how important it is to have a fire escape plan. Did you know that you can ask your local fire brigade to do a fire safety visit to your home? They can even give you free fire alarms.
The firefighters gave the children some homework for their adults – check your child’s bag if you haven’t seen it!
