5.4 Visit to Perry Common Fire Station.

As part of our 6th Form OCR topic in Life and Living Skills 5.4 visited the local community fire station to find out the different jobs people do in our community. Fire fighter Rob showed us around the station where we learned about how much special equipment the fire engine carries for emergency calls. We were introduced to fire fighters going about their work at the station and we were able to take a close look at all of the equipment used on the engine. We even had a go in the station gym to build up our strength for the walk back to school! We had a fantastic morning and many thanks to fire fighter Rob for a great visit!

5.4 throw a Halloween party!

As part of 5.4’s OCR Life & Living Skills topic they were tasked with planning and holding a party. What better opportunity than Halloween?

We all got dressed up and into the spirit of Halloween and a fabulous time was had by all, especially the winner of the pass the pumpkin parcel!
