The children in Fallow and Elk classes had a very exciting afternoon today when we were visited by the fire service! As part of our Great Fire of London topic, we have been looking at how the fire service has changed between 1666 and now. We discovered that in 1666 they had no fire engines or hoses and only leather buckets and axes. Today, we were able to discover what equipment they have available now to help them put out fires. The children were so excited to be able to hold the hoses themselves!
We would like to say a huge thank you to the Grantham fire service for coming to see us today.
