This week we will be exploring the role of a fireman and how they support the community.
The children will have the opportunity of exploring the fireman costume and begin to discuss the types of props they need to put out fires.
Key vocabulary: smoke alarm, fire, smoke, water, fire extinguisher, fire blanket, burn
Linked to our experience of the Police, we will think about using the 999 number to contact the emergency services.
We will explore safety around fires such as the use of matches, lighters and what to do should we see or smell smoke.
We will think about and discuss our class fire safety procedures should we hear the fire alarm and locate the emergency key and fire extinguisher within the class.
We will be watching fire safety video's to learn about how to behave should we encounter a fire.
Time for Talk: Does your child know who to call in an emergency? What kinds of dangers can they recognise in your home?
