3rd November 2016

Tuesday 2nd November 2016
Today we were visited by the Fire Brigade. Obviously, it is getting close to Bonfire Night (5th November) and they wanted to share with us very important advice regarding so that we can enjoy the fireworks but, most importantly, make sure that we are keeping ourselves safe.
On behalf of each year, the School Councillors would like to share with you their top tips for staying safe this Bonfire Night.

Year 5
1. Hold sparklers at arm’s length.
2. Do not throw anything (especially fireworks or gas) on to a bonfire.
3. If you can, go to an organised display: it is safer than having fireworks in the garden.

Year 6
1. Make sure you are wearing thick clothes – if possible made of fire resistant materials.
2. If you have pets, keep them inside with the doors and windows locked. Play music for them.
3. Have a bucket of water ready so that used sparklers can be disposed of safely.
4. If an adult is setting off fireworks in the garden, place it in a bottle so that it doesn’t get stuck in the ground and explode.
