Kids from Little Sponges Montessori in Hyde Vale paid a visit to Greenwich Fire Station earlier this month during a topic on Transportation.
Nicole from Little Sponges Montessori describes the visit:
"Firemen, Dave, Paul and Lee were extremely welcoming and made the visit so interesting for the children. They spent time explaining the role of the firefighter, demonstrating the firefighter's clothing including the breathing apparatus, talking to the children about safety and the use of the Fire Engine as a means of transportation in the event of a fire. The children experiemented with the water hoses and sat in the fire truck. A special bonus was seeing the firemen slide down the pole and hearing the sounding of the sirens. "
