This morning we had one of our local neighbourhood heroes, the fire brigade come to visit us! The children waited excitedly, watching to see our special visitors appear in our classroom all dressed up in their uniform! We learnt all about what to do if there is a fire in the house, to STOP, DROP AND GO, GO, GO to the letterbox or particular family meeting place. It might be a great opportunity to talk to your children about your emergency fire plan at home if there ever were such an incident. We also learnt about what to do if our clothes or if a part of our body were to catch on fire, to STOP, DROP AND ROLL! We definitely learnt a lot about fire safety this morning and our local heroes did an incredibly wonderful job teaching the children.
We were very excited to also climb through the fire engine truck and spray the giant hose with the fire fighter!
