Today we had a visit from the Fire Brigade. They talked to us about fire safety and how to stay safe at home. Afterwards, we went outside to look at their fire engines. They showed us around the fire engine and the machines they had if they ever had to rescue somebody from a car. Miss Stent dressed up, she looked like a real fire fighter! She had to wear a helmet, big boots, trousers with braces, a heavy coat and an oxygen tank. She said the equipment was very heavy! Then we went inside the fire engine. When we were inside the fire fighters talked about what they had to do when they were on their way to a real fire or a car crash. They have to get ready really quickly!
Thank you to the Fire Brigade for coming to Clifford School and helping us stay safe! We had a great time and have learnt lots.

We would like to say a huge thanks to the Clifford Parent Teacher Association for sponsoring the new playground markings. I'm sure you will all agree that they look amazing and the children are having great fun using their imagination.
After many months working on our dragon, he is finally finished! He began as part of our ' Past Times' topic when we looked at knights and dragons! After reading many different stories about dragons we had the idea of making our own Reception dragon! The children designed him and then we set about making him..........
We began by fixing together boxes to make the shape and then covering the boxes in newspaper.
We then added the wings and other features.
The children all had a go at decorating the dragon.
All that is left to do is give our dragon a name and decide where to put him!
