Fire hoses at the ready!

Fire hoses at the ready!

On Wednesday we went on a trip to a local fire station. It was organised by another home educating mum and proved extremely popular. I have honestly never seen so many home educated children (and their parents) in one place before. We had to be separated into four groups for the activities.

Our first activity was trying out the fire hoses. We found out how much water a fire engine can hold and where and what fire hydrants are. We were then able to use the small black hose to shoot down a target.

Next we had to rescue Blaze Bear as he  jumped from the fireman’s ladder, (we missed him the first time so had to try again!) Our group then got to look at a fireman’s outfit and learn how it keeps them safe.

Our last and probably favourite activity was to have a ride in the fire engine. Lights on and sirens blaring.

After we thanked all the firemen for a wonderful morning we headed over to the swing park for a picnic and a well deserved play.

We all had a truly fantastic day.

What a fun fire station trip! I went on a class trip with my son when he was in Montessori. They really enjoyed the ride in the truck too! We didn’t get to hold the fire hose though. Thanks so much for joining us for #bloggerclubuk, hope you will be back again tomorrow! x
