Emergency in Belmayne and a visit from a Fireman!

The children have been learning all about the emergency services in Aistear. We learned the emergency phone number - 112 or 999 and how the emergency services do such amazing work in so many areas. The children were extremely engaged in this topic and loved playing in the 'fire engine' and houses, saving people and pets from danger. They also built fire stations and fire engines, used the Fire Station Beebot to save people on the Beebot mat with lots of accidents and played with the small world emergency services toys. 























































We were also lucky enough to have Karl in to speak to us about being a fireman. He came into school in his uniform and told us all about what he does each day at work as a fireman, how his uniform protects him from the fire and water and what the fire station and fire brigade look like inside! The children learned a huge amount from his visit, thank you for coming into our class Karl!

Saving the animals in Aistear!

The Aistear topic of 'The Vet' was such a great topic to explore. The children were really engaged and loved looking after the sick animals and nursing them back to health. They also got to design butterflies, create mini-beasts and make their own animals out of playdough. I think we may have a few future vets in our classroom!
