Firefighter Week in Hedgehog Class!
We had a fantastic week learning all about what it would be like to be a firefighter! We even explored what it was like in the past when they had to use buckets of water to put out fires. Hedgehog Class were set a challenge to put out a fire in our playground with only one bucket and a container of water. They quickly worked out that they would have to work together and pass the bucket along! There was some amazing teamwork skills!
We then linked this to our Maths learning this week as we explored capacity. We had fun filling and sorting different containers to ‘full’, ‘half full’ and ’empty’ and we followed special instructions to make interesting sparkly potions!
In English we watched a clip from Fireman Sam and then wrote our own fire stories! We thought carefully about the beginning, middle and end of our stories and wrote them in our books!
