Week 3: Who will rescue us from villains?
Over the weekend Reception class has been visited by an intruder, who smashed the window and left footprints around the classroom. We checked the CCTV to find a Burglar in a stripey t-shirt with black mask and hat creeping around the room and taking our property such as a pen, a clock, a cup and Miss Harrison’s scarf and coat, to name but a few. We wrote ‘Wanted’ posters thinking about his appearence. On Wednesday we went to visit Chorley Police station to report the crime. The Police officer told us how he had been arrested and went by the name of ‘Burglar Bill’ and took us to see him in a real police cell. He returned our property and told us he wouldn’t steal ever again!. Whilst there, we learnt all about the police uniform and kit and had a sit in the back of a police van, listening to the siren! We had so much fun!!!
Week 2: Who will rescue us from a fire?
This week we have talked about how firefighters are superheros. We talked about their job and how they staf safe. We played with a firestation, wrote firework words and make firework transient art pictures. We even sprayed out tricky word fires with our hoses.
We had a visitor from a Firefighter who He talked to us about the different emergencies that he has to attend including fires, car crashes and rescuing people from high up and deep waters. He told about the protective clothing that he needs to keep safe including a mask so that he doesn’t inhale the smoke and the fire proof suit he must wear to protect himself from being burnt. He had a race with some children in class and talk about how fast they must get dressed when it is an emergency. Finally we went out on the playground to find out what equipment is onboard a fire engine. We saw a giant fan, giant scissors and hoses of different lengths. We enjoyed squirting the hose and listened to the Fire engines siren, Nee Naw, Nee Naw! It was great fun!!!
Remembrance Days: 100 year Anniversary
Soldiers are superheros too. We remember all the soldiers who have fought and been injured or lost their lives 100 years ago in WW1 and recently. We watched the poppy video about the rabbit during the war and the hope they was brought when poppies grew on the battlefield. We made poppies and did fingerprint art work of a poppy field. Grace brought in a photograph of her Great Grandad who fought in the war who turned 99 last week. We performed a poetry recital in front of the whole school. Ask us to recite the poem to you using the visual aid.
Week 1: What is a superhero?
This week we talked about what we already know and what we want to find out. We brought in our costumes that we made at home with our family and talked about what superhero name and power we had.
