The Fire and Rescue Service came to visit the reception children at school!
We have been thinking about people who help us in our lives, families and communities.

The children got to look around the fire engine and even sat inside it!
We listened to the sirens and sprayed the fire hose too!

We saw the clothes and special equipment they have to use, listened to what a smoke alarm...

This will be a busy but fun half term for the children. We have spo...
