Years 1 & 2 visited Canterbury Fire Station on 6th October 2017. Year 2 have been looking at the Great Fire of London as part of their class topic and Year 1 have been talking about action heroes. Where better in Canterbury to learn about both of these topics than with a school outing to Canterbury Fire Station to see first-hand the role of the Kent Fire & Rescue Service?
Pupils were split into groups and given a tour of the Fire Station starting in the control room where the firefighters will receive the initial call out. This led of course to the hub of the station which is the fire engine room. The firefighters spoke to pupils about what they do to keep us safe as well as talking through the very Important equipment found on the fire engines that they use when attending to emergencies. Pupils then visited the training yard where they took it in turns to use the powerful hose used to extinguish fires as well as a detailed look at a working fire engine. A fantastic experience for all the children expanding what has been learnt in the classroom (especially as Year 2 pupils now know that firefighting equipment extends beyond the leather buckets used in 1666!).
A big thank you to everyone in the White Watch at Canterbury Fire Station!
