Joshua class visited Newquay Lifeboat Station to learn all about how the RNLI use their boats and equipment to keep us safe in the water. The children enjoyed looking around the station, and discovering the two boats and tractors (used to get the boats in to the water). Joshua class were really impressed with the large tractor, that is water tight and can be submerged in water!
We also learned all about the Joshua boat. This is the boat our Reception class is named after, as we are the first class in Newquay Primary Academy. It was a wooden boat that had to be pulled in to the water by horses. You can see the boat at Newquay Carnival. Some of the children wanted to have their photos taken as lifeguards.
Many thanks to John who gave us a tour around the lifeboat station and who was full of interesting facts. Well done to Joshua class for super listening and questioning.
