2MH visit New Cross Fire Station

This afternoon, 2MH visited New Cross Fire Station to learn all about fire safety as part of our topic, the Great Fire of London.  The fire fighters showed us their safety equipment and told us how they keep other people and themselves safe in a fire.  Children were shown around the station, they were shown the office where calls come in, they were allowed to sit in the fire engine and they even had a go at squirting the hose!

 

Choir visit to Greenhive Care Home

Choir children visited residents in Greenhive Care Home today.  They sang to the residents and then did colouring in activities with them.  The children were fantastic – they were warm and friendly to the residents and they sang with so much energy that some of the residents joined in with the actions.  Well done Choir!

Rainbow Theatre visit – The Great Fire of London

Children in Year 2 were treated to a fantastic performance of ‘The Great Fire Of London’ this afternoon!  The Rainbow Theatre visited with three actors who performed the events that took place in 1665 and 1666.  First, they showed us the events of the Plague.  Then, they performed the Great Fire of London.  The actors brought to life the history that the children will be learning about this term.

The performance was interactive and the children were brought into the show to act with the performers.  The children were brilliant!  They all followed the actors’ instructions and every child had a job to do in putting on the performance.  The whole thing was very interesting and memorable and all children were engaged throughout.  What an excellent introduction to this term’s topic!
