On Thursday 24th January, Year 6 had a visit from the Blackburn Fire Department, the firefighters explained the dangers of fire with the pupils. A short video was watched, that demonstrated just how quickly a fire could spread in a living room and everyone soon realised the importance of having a fully functioning smoke alarm in their house. The fire fighters expressed the importance of phoning 999 as soon as a fire was noticed.
Road safety was also discussed, as many of the Year 6 pupils will be travelling to school independently when they begin secondary school in September. Pupils understood the importance of being aware when crossing roads and to always being on the lookout for any potential dangers. Pupils ended the session by successfully completing a quiz, which showed their knowledge and proved that the visit had been very worthwhile.
