Primary News/ Vesti iz osnovne skole

From the Primary Teachers/ od sefa Aktiva osnovne skole, Mrs Stupar and/ i Mrs Rose

On Tuesday 13th November the whole of Key Stage 1 went on a trip to the main Fire Station in Belgrade. The trip was organized for the children to get a ‘hands on experience’ in respect to their Design and Technology theme of Vehicles. The children were shown all aspects of the Fire Station, including the vehicles, equipment and where the Firemen work, relax and live at the station. The group was first taken up in one of the Fire Engines lifts that are used to rescue people from tall building or reach fires. The children enjoyed going high up in this equipment! This was followed by a ride around the local area in one of the Fire Engines. This was exciting as the Firemen showed the group how the sirens worked, and drove the fire engine as if they were going to a real fire emergency. The group then went into the garage area; were shown the uniforms, where they all tried on the helmets, coats and gloves, this was followed by watching the firemen all come down the fire mans pole! Then the children were taken up into the main building to see the control room where the emergency calls come in, the classroom where the fire man train, talk about the fires they have battled and discuss strategies. At the end of the visit the children had a demonstration by the fire men using the hoses that are used for electrical fires. At the end the Fire Chief talked to the children about fire safety and what to do if a fire was happening at home and how to get in contact with the Fire Brigade. All of Key Stage 1 had a great time and created some interesting and creative work after it.

And where would the Fire Brigade be without water? “Water” is the current Year 5 Geography topic and we have discovered a few interesting facts: Do you know that we use approximately 170 litres of water each a day? Do you know that water flows through the Belgrade city water pipes at a rate of 11,000 litres per second? Do you know that the people of Belgrade would have just one and a half days of water in their taps were something seriously wrong to happen to the city’s water supply? We found this out on a cold, grey Friday when we traveled along the Sava River to Makiš, the largest water treatment plant for the Sava Riverwater. Makiš is huge! After a technical lecture on the many stages in the process of water purification, we visited the canteen for refreshing juice. We then made a tour of some of the enormous buildings which house the water cleansing machinery. What a noise those giant pumps make! We climbed up and down staircases and past large pools and deep wells of water. We were surprised to find ourselves walking past piles of sand and were told that water is filtered through a metre of sand in one stage of the process. By the time we had finished we appreciated the effort and

U utorak 13. novembra svi ucenici KS 1 su bili u poseti vatrogasnj stanici u Beogradu. Putovanje je organizovano da bi deca stekla iskustvo u odnosu na temu “Dizajn i tehnologija vozila”. Deci su prikazani svi aspekti vatrogasne stanice, ukljucujuci vozila, opremu i mesto gde u samoj stanici vatrogasci rade, odmaraju se i provode vreme. Deca su se prvo popela na jedan od liftova vatrogasnog vozila koje spasava ljude is visokih zgrada i od jakog pozara. Deca su uzivala penjuci se po njemu. Nakon ovoga je sledila voznja u jednom od vatrogasnih vozila. Ovo je bilo uzbudljivo jer su vatrogasci pokazali deci kako rade sirene a vozili su kao da se radi o pravoj vatrogasnoj uzbuni. Zatim je nasa grupa otisla u prostor gde su garaze. Tu su im vatrogasci pokazali uniforme, svi su probali slemove, kapute i rukavice a posle toga su se svi vatrogasci spustili niz sipku za uzbunu! Zatim su decu odveli u glavnu zgradu da bi videla kontrolnu soba gde dolaze hitni pozivi, ucionicu gde vatrogasci treniraju, razgovaraju o pozarima koje su gasili i diskutuju o strategijama. Na kraju posete deci je demostrirana upotreba creva za gasenje pozara ciji je uzrok elektricna energija. Na kraju je sef vatrogasaca razgovarao sa decom o bezbednosti od vatre i o tome sta uraditi ukoliko do pozara dodje kod kuce i kako stupiti u kontakt sa vatrogasnom brigadom. Svi ucenici Key Stage 1 su se lepo proveli i nakon toga napravili neke zanimljive radove. A gde bi vatrogasna stanica bila da nema vode? “Voda” je trenutna tema 5. razreda iz geografije i otkrili smo neke zanimljive cinjenice: Da li znate da koristimo oko 170 litara vode svakoga dana? Da li znate da voda tece kroz vodovodne cevi grada Beograda brzinom od 11.000 litara u sekundi?Da li znate da ako dodje do ozbiljnog problema u snabdevanju grada sa vodom, gradjani Beograda bi samo jedan i po dan imali vodu u svojim slavinama? Ovo smo saznali jednog hladnog, sivog petka dok smo putovali duz reke Save do Makisa, najveceg postrojenja za preradu vode u slivu reke Save? Makis je ogroman! Nakon predavanja

Tada smo krenuli u obilazak nekoliko ogromnih zgrada u kojima se nalazi masinerija za preciscavanje vode! Penjali smo se gore i dole stepenicama pored ogromnih bazena i dubokih bunara sa vodom. Iznenadili smo se sto smo prosli pored naslaga peska tako da nam je objasnjeno da se voda u odredjenoj fazi procesa filtrira kroz jedan metar peskau Kada smo zavrsili nasu posetu osetili smo zahvalnost zbog napora i troskova koji su neophodni da se za sve nas voda odrzi cistom. Nas sledeci cilj je da saznamo nacin na koji mozemo sacuvati vodu.
