This was part of our topic work about people who help us, both in school and in the wider community. We have had visits from an ER nurse, a surveyor and an emergency worker. We also toured the school and interviewed the kitchen staff, front office ladies and Mrs. Warmington about their work.
At the Fire Station we got a chance to try out lots of things. Everyone tried on a fireman's hat and had a go aiming at a cone with the strong water hoses. It was great fun and a little bit wet! The firemen showed us what they do in a real emergency, sliding down the pole and zooming out of the station with their sirens blazing. It was very exciting. Quite a few of us have decided that we would like to be fire fighters when we grow up.
