Year 2 are currently studying the topic of ‘The Great Fire of London’. A visit was organised from Mitcham Firefighters to help spark their learning about modern fire fighting equipment and comparing it to fire fighting equipment from 1666. As you can see from the photos below – the children found it very interesting and were fascinated by the clothing the Firefighters have to wear to protect themselves. they also learned about the different tasks that Firefighters have to deal with, other than just fires! The children really enjoyed seeing the fire engine so close up and watching the power of the water hose. This was great experience for all involved.
