Fire Service Visit

Attenborough class have had a Hampshire Fire Service visit in school today. The talk began with a video of how quickly a house fire can spread in one room, from no fire at all to flames billowing out of the windows and doors (less than 3 minutes). We all discussed the importance of smoke alarms and making sure they are tested every week.

The children then had the opportunity to see general house hold items and appliances and discuss the dangers they can pose such as a toaster, kettle and an aerosol can; followed by discussing how to keep safe when using these items.

Finally, the children learnt about road safety. We all watched a video after being asked a question to count the number of passes between the players wearing white t-shirts and due to the concentration only 2 children spotted the dancing bear walk across the screen. Remember we can miss things we aren't looking for! Therefore the message to children was to make sure they all wear bright clothing as the days start to get colder and darker as it is hard for drivers to see them if they are in dark colours.

The children all had a fantastic afternoon. Thank you to Hampshire Fire Safety!
