We had an eventful visit to Whitehaven Fire and Rescue Station this afternoon.

During our visit the station received a call out and we were able to watch as they dashed out to the rescue.

We learnt lots about the different ways Firefighters rescue people and about the equipment they use.

What a memorable afternoon it was!

 We have been learning about calligraphy poetry.

We used the themes of friendship and being unique as part of anti-bullying week to create

our own calligraphy poetry that explores how we behave can affect people's feelings

Year Two visited Egremont Library this morning.

We learnt all about how the books are organised and how important it is to keep the library tidy.

We chose a library book to take home using our library card.
