Call the Fire Brigade
18 October 2013
As an extension of their studies about the Fire of London, Year 2 girls enjoyed a visit from the local fire brigade. The firemen and firewoman arrived on Prep playground in several vehicles, including a fire engine.
The first part of the visit included a talk about the great historical fire which the girls proved to be very knowledgeable about and impressed the firemen with their answers.
The visitors also talked about safety and Miss Jones became a volunteer fireman as she was dressed up in the protective uniform.This was followed by some practical experience of sitting in the engine and operating the hose. Our playground was certainly clean after the visit!
