A visit from the firemen

We were very lucky to have 3 super funny firemen come and visit our class to teach us about fire safety. We discussed how matches and lighters are tools for adults, not toys. We watched a video showing how a candle near a curtain can catch on fire very quickly and we even practised how to Get Down, Get Low and Get Out under a black sheet (smoke). Great fun but some life saving skills were definitely learned!

A whole class visit to the dental van!

This week we had the opportunity to visit the famous dental van of Mrs Pinker!! Somehow we managed to fit the whole class into the van but only one student was chosen to model the dental chair. Mrs Pinker chose Mackenzie as she had just lost one of her teeth about an hour before we had our visit! The kids loved this chance to visit the van in a fun environment and couldn't wait to have their turn at having their own teeth examined. Of course, after the amount of time we have spent on our Healthy Teeth unit and even brushing our teeth in class, we will have the cleanest teeth at HNP!!
