This term, our learning theme is all about People that help us. We had an incredible time visiting Poplar firestation to meet a team of some very important people that help us- firefighters! We had a tour of the premises and got to see the equipment. We asked lots of questions and also showed off our own knowledge of firefighters from the learning we did in school. The highlight was when we all got to experience using a firehose ourselves and imagine we were firefighters!

Firefighters Micheal and Jo showed us some of their tools and described their typical day at work.
We became super excited when Jo pulled out the hose to allow us to have a go!
We really enjoyed using the powerful hose to spray water. It wasn’t easy because the water was coming out very fast and we had to aim it correctly at our target. We loved our day with the brave firefighters!
