Welcome to Year 2!

This term, Year 2’s Inquiry Project is Fire! Fire! We are learning about the aftermath of the Great Fire of London. We had 2 visits from the crew at Kingswood Fire Station who came in to talk to us about fire safety and let us see their Fire Engine.
By the end of term, we had also finished our 3-D maps of London. This is Voyager Class’s map:
Our hall displays this term showcase the work of Frank Bailey. Frank was a Firefighter from Guyana who moved to England in 1953 where he applied to join the West Ham Fire Brigade in 1955. Frank was the first Black firefighter in England. In a statement read out at Frank’s funeral, London Fire Commissioner, Ron Dobson said of Frank, he was “a pioneer and rightly challenged the out-dated practices prevalent at the time. He played an enormous role in the history of Black firefighters in this country and his legacy is still felt today”
