Some special visitors arrived at Marlbrook this half term- our local Police Community Officers, Adam Westlake and Lowri Anderson.
The officers chatted to the children about their job and the children had the opportunity to ask lots of questions . Lowri explained how to stay safe and then the children were allowed to try on the police hats and uniform. The police radios were a big interest and PC Hughes demonstrated how he could contact the Police Station for the children.
We all had a real treat as outside the classroom was a police van. The children listened to the siren and saw the flashing blue emergency light. At the back of the van there was even a 'jail'. PC Hugheseven locked Mrs Osborne in the jail! All the children were able to climb through the van and sit in the drivers seat.
This was a great visit and a great learning opportunity for the children. One aspect of the Early Years curriculum is learning about People and Communities. The children were able to learn first hand whilst having a lot of fun.
