Y1 Trip to the Harrogate Fire Station

Today the children in Year 1 went on a visit to Harrogate Fire Station. Kevin the Fire Fighter taught the children about the fire engines and equipment used to fight fires. He also took them through the emergency procedure when a 999 call is made. The children asked many interesting questions and answered Kevin's questions really well. All the children enjoyed sitting in the fire engine and trying on helmets. They all behaved impeccably and benefited greatly from this worthwhile trip. They learned the Fire Fighters have to go to the gym each day. In class we have been looking at real life heroes and visiting the Fire Fighters really brought our topic to life.
