On Tuesday 24th October, Prep 5 pupils were delighted to welcome to the classroom, four Fire Safety Officers from the Lisburn Road Fire Station. The firemen gave a very interesting and helpful presentation based on fire prevention in the home and how to react in the event of an emergency involving fire in the home.
The girls were introduced to a variety of fictional characters, each one sharing useful advice in an entertaining way. A lively question and answer session followed the presentation with many of the girls having the opportunity to share their concerns and to ask questions relating to fire safety.
As always, the highlight of the visit came at the end when each girl had permission to take control of the fire appliance’s hose and soak the playground! At this point, it was an appropriate time for the teacher and classroom assistant to take cover!
Through our Big Write sessions this half term, we have been learning how to set out instructions and rules and the girls were able to put what they had learned into practice as they created their own set of fire safety rules. A job well done!
