This week we have been learning about shapes during our Maths lessons.  We have been looking at the properties of 2D shapes and trying to find shapes in the environment.

A very special visitor

 We were thrilled today to welcome Mat from Highgate Fire Station. 

He is a firefighter and even drives the fire engine. 

He told us all about his job and showed us his special protective clothing.

The children listened beautifully and asked excellent questions. 

We are very proud of them and look forward to welcoming more visitors in the future.

We learnt how to call the fire service and how to stay safe from objects such as matches and fireworks.  



Mat also told us how the firebrigade can install fire alarms in people's homes and reminded us to check our fire alarms regularly.
