Year 5 were lucky enough to have the Devon Fire and Rescue service come to visit to talk about fire safety.
Some of the things highlighted were:
Who to call in an emergency,
Fire escape routes at home,
How to test a smoke detector,
What to do if your clothes catch fire,
What a prank/hoax call is.
The fireman also highlighted that they have been renamed as the Fire and Rescue Service as they tend to deal with more rescues now than fires.
There is a photo attached with a phone number for a free installation of smoke detectors in your home. If you live in a bungalow, one smoke detector is needed in the hallway. If you have a two storey house, two smoke detectors are needed. And so on, if you have more floors in your house.
The visit was very informative and the children learnt a lot and were able to take booklets home and discuss fire safety with their families.
As part of the Tiverton Learning Community, local primary schools were asked to take part in a boys futsal tournament.
The rules are similar to football with some minor amendments.
Nine of our year 5 boys represented Two Moors. The boys played extremely well and came 3rd. They encouraged each other throughout the tournament with praise and kind comments. They were a credit to the school.
As a school, we are promoting reading. Not just children reading to us, but the adults reading to the children as well. This does not include any books we are using for a literacy sequence.
We have chosen six different books, that have been recommended by Devon Library Services, which are age appropriate for Year 5.
We have wrapped the books and written a description for each book. The children will then vote as to what book they would like read to them, based on the description only, and not what the book looks like.
The votes are coming in and there is still time to vote for your chosen book.
