Light My Fire!
Things heated up in Year 2 last week when everyone they had the opportunity to visit either Isa Town, Budaiya or Riffa Fire Stations. After informative talks regarding fire safety in the home, the children had a great time climbing inside the fire engine and driving round with the sirens on and lights flashing, seeing the safety equipment in use putting out a real fire and even walking in the foam used to tackle petrol and chemical fires!
While 2B were there, everyone was startled when one of the engines suddenly shot off to tackle a real fire! Everyone returned to school fired up and ready to look at the differences between modern fire fighting techniques compared to the rudimentary ways the big one in London was tackled in 1666.
