Year 1 become firefighters!

Wow!  What an amazing day year 1 had at the Swindon Fire Station.    We explored the fire station, had a turn with one of the hoses, climbed aboard the fire pump, had a ride in the aerial cage and asked lots and lots of questions!

The children were so interested in everything that the firefighters showed us and asked some brilliant questions including how the water in the hose defied gravity and how long the hoses were!  The firefighters were really impressed with the behaviour and interest of the children and I’m pretty sure the children loved it too!

We also had a fantastic talk about fire safety during which the children showed off their knowledge from the time they spend in the forest with Mrs Maslin.  All in all an amazing day and some very tired children (and adults!)  t
