When we visited The Dean Heritage museum and explored the Gruffalo trail. We saw lots of Julia Donaldson's characters carved out of wood. When we returned to school, we were inspired by the season of Autumn to make our own Stick Men.

The Great Fire of London

The Great Fire of London 1

We had a Fire Safety visit from the Avon Fire and Rescue team. We found out about the different roles the fire and rescue service is responsible for, the rules of escape if there is a fire and the stop, drop and roll technique should our clothes catch fire. We learnt a lot of very important information.

Remember the Fire and Rescue team are happy to visit your home and carry out a fire safety check.

Let us know and we can pass on your details.
