On Monday, Oak Class went on their first school trip. We all got onto a coach and visited the fire fighters at Uckfield Fire Station. The children were given a tour of the fire engines, as well as being shown the uniforms and equipment used to put out fires, and help save people and animals from tall buildings and trees. All the children were given the opportunity to sit inside the fire engine cab and experience what it would be like to travel in the engine, as a real fire fighter. The children all had a go at throwing a buoyancy aid with a rope. We were really impressed at how far they could throw it; it’s quite heavy! The highlight of the trip for all the children was being able to spray the hose. The fire fighters were great with the children and even let them spray down some of their cars!
A great trip with lots of conversation and writing, as a result. Great work, Oak Class!
