Get The Fire Brigade!

Year 1 and 2 enjoyed a visit from the fire brigade today. We managed to organise a parking place for the fire engine outside the school. The children enjoyed exploring the fire engine and finding out more about fire safety as part of their Learning Journey, which is focusing on the great fire of London at the moment.
