ELM - Y2
Elm class had a visit from a firefighter who told them all about how to keep safe and what to do in the event of a fire. They learnt how often to test fire alarms, what to do if there is smoke and to ‘Stop, drop and roll’ if their clothes are on fire. Some of them even got to try on the firefighters special clothing they put on to fight fires.
Trip to Malmesbury
On Wednesday 6th November Elm class visited Malmesbury. First we walked up the steep steps. Next we went to the Birdcage, the monument in the High Street. We looked at all the shops in the high Street. Next we went to the Library and met Carolyn. She told us about the library and we had to find books. We went to the Abbey and met Andrew. There we found out about the Abbey and had our lunch. Afterwards we walked to the Athlestan Museum. I saw lots of interesting things and liked it in the museum. I saw a picture of how the Abbey used to look. We went on the bus on the way home and we walked along the river and saw the old railway tunnel before we left. By Leo
