1B have really enjoyed learning about “The Jobs People Do”. We ended our topic by visiting Long Bien Fire Station. The children had prepared a long list of questions and they learnt a lot more about the role of a fire fighter.
The children started off in a classroom style room where the fire fighters showed us their different uniforms and equipment. Some children were lucky enough to try on some of the uniform and hold the equipment.
After that the fire fighters showed us some of the exercises they did. They were very fit and strong.
Then we went to look at the fire engines. There were many different types. 1B liked the one with the ladder on the top the most! All of the children got to have a ride in the fire engine. We went around the block and the fire-fighters turned on the siren and lights. It was a very exciting drive!
Finally we all had a photo together and 1B went back to school.
