........Welcome back and welcome to our new starters................


Today we are going to think about firefighters... 


Do you think a firefighter is a hero?  

What does he/ she do?


Watch this video about a little boy called Jack who imagines what it would be like to be a firefighter.

I Want To Be A Firefighter - Kids Dream Jobs - Can You Imagine That?

Jack wants to be a firefighter. He imagines what it would be like...

Think about what would make you a superhero firefighter.  

What would you do to save the day? 


Draw a picture of yourself as a firefighter...

Have you drawn a fire engine? What about the hose squirting water? 

Add some labels your picture.

remember - just think of the sounds that you can hear and write those... 


('hose' may be   h - o - w - z  or even just   h - z - just have a go)



Maybe you could write a sentence with your grown-up about your picture. 

e.g. 'I can squirt water'. 'I can put a fire out'. 'My fire engine is red'.

Remember to plan your idea carefully and sound out one word at a time. 

(you don’t have to write it perfectly, just listen for the sounds that you can hear in the words and write those down)
