Firefighters in EYFS

Last week the Early Years Foundation Stage were lucky to get a visit from some firefighters and see a real fire engine! As part of ‘People who help us’ day they told us all about the work they do, such as, putting out fires and rescuing people and animals.

The children were very excited to be shown around the fire engine and hear the sirens; we learned all about the different tools and equipment and even saw a real ‘Jaws of Life’. The firefighters showed us their special uniforms that keep them safe and a couple of children were able to try on the boots, trousers and helmets which had a special visor.

The children had lots of fun and we think the firefighters do an amazing job!
