Year 2 Pupils have a visit from the Fire Brigade!
Year 2 enjoyed an action packed visit from Lancashire Fire Brigade this week. The firefighters highlighted the importance of having a fire plan and regularly testing household smoke alarms.
The children were shown the clothing and apparatus which the fire fighters must wear and Mrs Milnes took part in the countdown challenge to see how quickly she could get dressed into the full kit. The record was 29 seconds but Mrs Milnes managed it in 27 seconds – a new record for Westholme! The pupils then watched a video before having their knowledge tested in a quiz.
The children role played a house fire scenario following their fire plan rules and the firefighters were extremely impressed with their knowledge and understanding.
Everyone promised the firefighters that they would learn their full address in the event of having to phone 999. What an entertaining and informative day!
