Ely reception pupils got up close and personal with fire engines and operated firefighters’ equipment when paying an educational visit to the Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue service.
The King’s Ely Acremont students learned the importance of fire safety and were told more about the “urgent nature” of the firefighters’ jobs during the Egremont Street station visit on Monday, September 24.
Faye Fenton-Stone, head of King’s Acremont, said: “Learning should be much more than a classroom-based experience and I am pleased to see that our Reception children are making the most of exploring our community.
“On their return, the children were full of conversation and their excitement and observations fed their plans and engagement during some busy role play and sketching with pastels.
“Shortly after, the children composed a thank you note for the time the firefighters gave up explaining their job and touring the station. Well done children, for your manners and thoughtfulness!

“The visit also saw the children being able to climb aboard the fire engine, and the highlight for most of them was having a go at blasting the water hose as high as they could!
“The trip was organised to tie in with the children’s topic for the term, All About Me.”
