On the final afternoon of this term the Year 6 children treated us to five wonderful poetry performances. Zina, Hannah, Ben, Asya and Scarlett brought their chosen poems to life with dramatic recitations using very effective tone of voice, along with facial expression and actions. It was a fierce competition and the judges found it incredibly difficult to select between the five performances. Based upon the criteria, Scarlett was selected as the winner with Hannah as runner up. However, one and a half points separated first and fifth place! Congratulations to all of the children who entertained the school so superbly.
On Friday 23rd March, we visited Sidcup Fire Station. The firefighters on Green Watch showed us some firefighting equipment from the past and how it has improved in recent years. We saw where the calls come into the station and heard the alarm that they hear when they are needed. We took our cardboard buildings with us and the firefighters made them into Pudding Lane and set fire to them! We watched how the wind blew the flames along and how the fire stopped when there was a gap in the buildings. Lastly, we got to explore the Fire Engine and see all the equipment the firefighters carry with them to emergencies. We asked lots of questions and really enjoyed the trip. A great end to our topic.
