Ms Huntington: March 2016
We had a wonderful day on Wednesday, when we visited Crewe Fire Station. The train journey was really exciting, the train went very fast and we could see lots of interesting things out of the window.
When we arrived at Crewe Station we were met by Sammy the Safety Bear. She was very friendly and she took us through the subway safely to the other side of the station. At the Fire Station, the Fireman in charge met us and took us to the Staffroom. There was a very good smell of bacon and eggs as the Firemen were just about to have breakfast.
Fireman Andy showed us some of his equipment and Ms Huntington had to dress up a fire fighter!
We then went outside and the Headquarters at Warrington set off the bells so we could hear and see what happens when there is a real fire! All the firefighters came rushing outside ready to put on their uniforms! They were not happy when they saw us and that it was a pretend emergency!
Climbing into the big fire engine was tricky. Fireman Andy then drove the fire engine around to the back with the sirens on. He set up the hose pipes and we all had a go at squirting water like a real firefighter. After that we all sang out firefighter song to Andy and said goodbye.
As we were leaving, the bells rang for a real fire and all the firefighters came rushing down and into the engines and off they sped out of the Fire Station. The ambulance car went too. It was a really exciting end to our visit.
We walked back to Crewe Station to be met by Sammy and she took us to meet the Platform Supervisors, they showed how they help the people get safely off and on the train.
We had our lunch in the Waiting Room and we had a story while we ate our lunch. Yvonne the Manager gave us all some nice things to take home. We loved our journey home and finished off the day at Wrenbury Park.
Thank you to Mr Forshaw for helping us with this visit, it was a very memorable day. The children were excellent and thank you to the parents who helped us too.
Ms Huntington, Mrs Parson & Mrs Wimpenny.

What a lot of space-tastic fun we have had this week! I can't quite believe how much we have done. We have been busy making space robots and spaceships — we also made a space caravan would you believe! The children created ramps and raced the space men down it- they looked at lots of different ways to speed them up and to catch them at the end. We thought about what we wanted to be when we...
Base 1 have been learning about owls this week. We have been finding out about different types of owls and where they nest. We read the stories Owl babies and The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark. We are making an owl using natural objects gathered from our outdoor area and Mrs Winward's garden. We have been looking at the life cycle of a barn owl. Mrs Charlesworth brought some owl pellets for...
Continuing to explore our Space theme, the children drew around themselves creating an astronaut and set about decorating it. We have turned our handprints into aliens and wrote our names in glitter. The children finished off their mobile of the planets (we may have discovered a few more than in real life!) and hung this in the classroom. It looks super! Last week we made astronaut packed...
