Fire Safety

Apparently I missed a layer of papier mache going onto D's cup, so today it got it's last layer. Tomorrow it will be ready for painting, though with swimming, I am not sure if we will have time.

Here is an updated picture of D's bog garden. I was really surprised that it has flourished as well as it has. Just a shame I don't know what is growing in there.

Today we did a little project on fire safety and what to do in the event of a fire.
The boys checked the smoke alarm and made sure the batteries were ok and they also practised opening the fire escape window. At least we now know that in the event of fire, that both the children will be able to open the window and get out safely.

They also have learned what to do if their clothes were to catch fire. The best thing would be that a fire didn't start in the first place so we discussed how to keep safe and the importance of not playing with fire. They even made their own warning posters.

I am going to see if it is at all possible to go and visit a fire station in the near future.
