Police and their van!
Wow what a treat, today we had two police officers come to nursery in their uniforms to show us their police van! We got to sit in the front seat, switch the blue lights on, sound the alarm/siren and ask questions to the policemen. Look at what fun we had!
We had children say "Wow that looks like a real police van!" and after putting the siren on to let everyone know we were on our way...when asked where we were off to a child replied "off to get hotdogs! yay!!!"
Today's visit allowed us to have a big think and talk about some of the things that the police officers do, like finding people who are lost, reminding people to do the right thing or helping people to be safe in the community. The children remembered that the police can help us in an emergency and also remembered the important number to dial when we need their help…999.
Visit such as todays' helps our children to begin to understand about our community and the world around them and also helps them to learn about the different ways that people help us to keep safe. It is a really good opportunity to find out what they know and ask questions to learn lots of new information too.
Thank you very much Officer Ben and Officer Lawrence for our wonderful experience, you were so kind!
