Nursery had an amazing trip to Gosforth Fire Station on Wednesday morning.

They started off with a tour of the kit room and the appliance bay and even got to try out sliding down the fireman’s pole! Next they sat inside a fire engine and tried out the thermal imaging camera, looking for hot spots on each other. The best bit was having a ride around the compound with the lights flashing and sirens sounding just like real fire fighters, as can be seen in the video. Lastly after a quick tour of the gym, they were all able to try to soak our teachers with the hoses and try on the fire helmet and breathing apparatus.

What a wonderful learning opportunity for the boys who now know how to stay fire safe.
