On Thursday 28th June a member of the London Fire Brigade visited our school to work with our Year 2 and Year 5 classes. During the workshop children learned about the job firefighters do including what specialist equipment they use and fire resistant clothes they wear. The children were really surprised to learn that the Fire Brigade not only put out fires but they also rescue animals, get people out of cars that have been in accidents and work in other countries where people have suffered because of natural disasters.
The second part of the workshop taught the children about how to stay safe if a fire breaks out and emphasised the importance of having a smoke alarm in your homes. Children had a homework task to take home to their parents which will test their knowledge of what can cause a fire. Both children in Year 2 and Year 5 really enjoyed the workshops which were both interesting and informative.
