The children had the chance to put on a firefighter’s helmet with visor.  Some also tried out the metal cutting tool.  “I liked that best,” said Abigail (Y2).  “I felt the metal snap.  It was really weird.”

 

The visit made a real impression on everyone.

“I learned how firemen can get water from swimming pools and rivers.  I liked the ladders best” – Zachary (Reception)

“My favourite was going inside the engine” – Ella (Y2)

“I liked all of it.  My favourite bit was being tricked.  They pretended they were going to turn the hose on us!” – Charlie (Y1)
