A Lesson in Fire Safety

19 April 2017

We have spent the last couple of weeks thinking about 'people who help us', in nursery, throughout the whole school and into the wider community. What do doctors, paramedics, vets, bin men, bus drivers..., really do to help us?

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 make their beds! The children were enthralled by the big noisy equipment that they use to cut cars after traffic accidents. The fire alarm sounded and a fireman whizzed down the pole and got into his fire fighting boots and jacket. In less than a minute they can drive away in the fire engine. Thankfully it was just for us to see and not a real fire! However, we did find out that they are called out an average of twice a day! And finally we had a great opportunity for asking questions and many of the nursery children were wonderfully confident talking to the firemen and listening attentively too. It really was a fantastic morning packed with excitement and learning.
