Stop, Drop and Roll
Year 1 had a visit from lots of firefighters from Sunderland to raise awareness of fire prevention and how to keep safe around fire. The firefighters explained to the children how their outfits work to keep them safe and some even tried them on.
The children were given many important safety tips, including a rhyme to help remind them not to touch matches and lighters, how to call 999 in the event of a fire, and the stop, drop and roll technique in case their clothes are set on fire.
The fire engine came onto the school yard and all got a turn squirting the hose like the firefighters do when they are putting out a fire. Everybody really enjoyed the afternoon and learned a lot.
