Pupils, parents and staff at the Beacon Primary Academy in Skegness took part in a curriculum event that involved working with the police and local firefighters.
They dressed up in costumes associated with their topic, ‘People Who Help Us’.
The event gave the children an opportunity to celebrate the learning experiences during the last four weeks. The first week focussed on the work of the firefighters, preparing questions for the fantastic team from the Skegness Fire Service.
The second week involved learning about the armed forces and the school was visited by Army member, James Porter, who supported the children’s understanding of how the armed forces help us, both nationally and internationally.
Week three focused on how doctors, nurses and paramedics support us in our everyday lives and the children enjoyed using the hands-on equipment used by these professionals. The final week involved working with the police and learning how this service can helpthe local community.
Principal Mrs Wright said: “The children have had a fantastic day and have had such amazing experiences with the visitors that we have had in during the last four weeks; we are very grateful for their support. Being able to dress up today in the uniforms worn by the ‘People Who Help Us’ has been memorable and thoroughly enjoyable. It was a fantastic conclusion to our topic.”
An open day is being held at the new Beacon Primary Academy building on Tuesday, January 27, for parents and the community. Contact the Academy on 01754 879211 to attend.
