At the end of the autumn term, Year 1 children received a visit from the crew at Bletchley Fire Station. This was arranged to support and enrich their learning alongside the topic ‘Machines.’
In the classroom they were shown the components of the ‘kit’ the firefighters wear to keep themselves safe from danger. They were then shown around the fire engine and learned about all the tools and machines used to put out fires and to rescue people and animals. They were able to handle some of the equipment, helped by the firefighters as everything was very heavy!
