Nursery Trip to the Fire Station

04 March 2015

The Nursery children have been thinking about 'people who help us', in their class, throughout the whole school and into the wider community. Natalie Walker, Head of Pre-Nursery and Nursery, tells us about their trip to the fire station this week to find out more about firemen and how they help us.

  • Nursery students at the British International School Shanghai, Puxi campus visit the local fire station.

In nursery we have been thinking about what doctors, paramedics, dentists, bin men, bus drivers really do to help us. We have focused on the questions we need to ask, to find out what we needed to know at the fire station.

The children were excited on the buses for the short journey and so well behaved when we arrived, despite the thrill of seeing the fire engines up close. They listened really well to the firemen, and a few were confident enough to start asking questions straight away as soon as they saw the fascinating equipment. We saw the fire men's living quarters and watched an amazing demonstration of how they slide down the pole and get dressed. Did you know it only takes the fire men 1 minute to get dressed and into the fire engine? We decided we would practice this with our own coats when we arrived back at school! The children were enthralled by the big noisy equipment that they use to cut cars after traffic accidents.

We were also lucky enough to watch the firemen use the big long hose and make their way up the ropes and over a very high wall!  It really was a fantastic morning packed with excitement and learning.
