The fire brigade visited Seahorses and Clownfish today.

The children were fascinated with how various equipment works.

They impressed the fire fighters with sensible questions and answers.

They were lucky enough to spend some time inside the truck with flashing lights and sirens!


The Year One Seahorse and Clownfish classes were surprised to discover their classrooms had been messed up by an unknown weekend visitor.

After much investigation and discussion the children came to the conclusion that a dragon must have trampled through our classrooms.

Some thought it was a baby dragon which hadn’t yet grown into its large paws as there was no sign of fire damage.…and everyone knows that baby dragons are the only ones which haven’t learned how to breathe fire!  Others thought that the dragon was curious about maths, and one child even suggested that it had to have been a troublesome teenage dragon !

A lot of imaginative writing evolved from this visit.


Week commencing 16th January 2017

In maths the children have been using cubes, rulers and metre sticks to measure the length of objects around the classroom.



The children measured each other’s height using metre sticks and tape measures. They then stood in order of height.

On Monday the children arrived at school to find that their classroom had been wrecked by a dragon! The children enjoyed following the footprints and they discovered an egg which the dragon left behind.
