Year 5's visit from the Firefighters!
On Thursday 9th October, Year 5 had a very interesting and exciting visit from two Firefighters from Gorton Fire Services. The team shared their expert advice about keeping ourselves safe during our celebrations for Halloween and Bonfire Night.
Take a look at the fascinating photographs below!
Tina Nguyen (Y5) " I thought that the Firefighters were phenomenal because they can help people to stay safe over the holidays coming soon!"
Kevin Chinthati (Y5) "When they came they showed us all of their tools that they use for their missions to keep people safe from fires. I thought that the helmets were fascinating!"
Salome Pascoe (Y5) "It was so fun! They helped us to learn how to be very safe on Halloween and Bonfire Night. I even had a race against one of the Firemen to get dressed in our firefighting uniform and I won!"
Lawand Kader (Y5) "I was really excited and I liked how they were here to teach us about our safety outside school. I enjoyed it and everyone was really happy!"
Year 3 have been working really hard in Karate Club, their spirit and enthusiasm is enlightening and wonderful to see!
