This term, Year 5 students have been learning about bushfires. As part of this unit, they have explored how extreme natural events can affect people and places and how these affects can be reduced. They created bushfire artwork and wrote poems to illustrate their understandings of the impact.

This week, to consolidate their learning, students enjoyed a visit from Bruce Linfoot, a station officer for Queensland Fire and Rescue. Bruce discussed ways in which people can be prepared for bushfires and the steps we should take to make sure our homes are bushfire ready. Year 5 students will now write a report of how their own homes will be ready in case of a bushfire and will be including floor plans and evacuation routes.
