Our trip to Kingswood Fire Station

On Friday, Squirrel and Hedgehog class were lucky enough to visit Kingswood Fire Station. After walking there in the cold (without moaning!), we were greeted by Dean the fire fighter.

Squirrels had their fire safety talk first, which included the 5 steps to follow if there is a fire. Hedgehogs went to look around the fire engines and Sean showed them the various tools fire fighters use for different jobs. The classes then swapped and had similar discussions with the fire fighters. The children then got the chance to use the hoses- which they absolutely loved!

Whilst we were there, the station received an emergency call. The fire fighters had to get into their uniforms and into their fire engines as quickly as they could. It was very exciting for us to see the fire fighters in action.

We had a fantastic day and everything we have learned will help us to write our fire safety leaflets this term.

Thank you to Kingswood Fire Station for having us!
