What a wonderful afternoon Year 2 had visiting Whitehaven Fire Station for a Great Fire of London session! The children amazed the firefighters with their knowledge of how the fire started and why it spread so quickly. They found out how there was no fire service at the time and how that led to the fire service today. They watched as a model of London was set on fire and passed buckets of water along a line to help put the fire out. The afternoon ended with all the children taking turns to use the water hoses.
