Grantham nursery get a lesson in fire safety
Children at a Grantham nursery got a chance to play at being real firefighters when a fire crew visited them at their nursery for a lesson in safety last week.
Puddleducks Preschool and Nursery welcomed the crew from Grantham fire station to talk to the children about how to stay safe on bonfire night.
Children of all ages from across the nursery on Welham Street got to ask any questions they had and have a turn in the fire engine.
They even got the chance to test how powerful a hose is by trying to knock a pumpkin off a flower bed.
The firemen also taught the children how to stop, drop and roll, an action used when clothing catches fire.
Nursery manager Vanessa Neale said: “They all had such a great time. They have been practising the stop, drop and roll ever since.
“Their parents were very happy about their children being able to learn how to be safe especially with bonfire night coming up last weekend.
“One child even told his mum that you have to wear gloves to have a sparkler so you don’t burn your hands”.
