Absent Monday

Good afternoon,

Well, our planning day has been quite productive. We're doing ancient civilisations next term - I'm picking either Romans or Greeks/Macedonians. Alexander the Great. Macedonians with a hard 'c', just like they would have said it. Actually, they are more likely to say "us" and "you lot wat we 'av just dun over"...

Room 2 did some Geometry this morning...

...and some R.E. in the afternoon...

...with other stuff in between. Thanks Mrs Hooker.

And before I go, a message just in from Melissa...

Mrs Harlan
CU in the morning,

Mr Grant

P.S. I don't often pass on email stuff, but this is actually quite important...


A wet dishcloth can be a one size fits all lid to cover a fire in a pan!

This is a dramatic video (30-second, very short) about how to deal with a common kitchen fire...oil in a frying pan.

At the Fire Fighting Training school they would demonstrate this with a deep fat fryer set on the fire field. An instructor would don a fire suit and using an 8-oz. cup at the end of a 10-foot pole to toss water onto the grease fire. The results got the attention of the students.

The water, being heavier than oil, sinks to the bottom where it instantly becomes superheated. The explosive force of the steam blows the burning oil up and out. On the open field, it became a thirty-foot high fireball that resembled a nuclear blast.

Inside the confines of a kitchen, the fire ball hits the ceiling and fills the entire room.

Also, do not throw sugar or flour on a grease fire. One-cup of either creates the explosive force of two sticks of dynamite.

Umm, just one thing, they show the announcer at the end of the clip. She's a burn victim, with a disfigured face.

Parents, you may want to watch it first, and then decide whether you want to show your children...just a thought...
