Year 1 Great Fire of London 'Wow' day - Summer 1 term
At the beginning of May Year one had a super special day taking part in different activities linked to our topic. The children loved meeting two firefighters and getting the chance to explore a real fire engine as well as squirt fire targets with a hose pipe. We all learnt lots about fire safety too! They also created beautiful 'Great Fire of London' scratch pictures using wax crayons, black paint and cocktail sticks! The final activity was outdoor team games involving lots of water and pretend fires. The children had an amazing day and it really motivated and engaged them to learn more as our topic progresses.
Some very happy firefighters!
We had some very wet children by the end of this activity.
