Year 6 welcomed local firefighter Ged into St Albert’s. Ged gave the children a fascinating insight into what life is like as a firefighter and how important maths is in his job. From calculating how much water a fire engine can contain through using volume formula to calculating how many minutes firefighter’s breathing apparatus can last in a burning building we all realised how crucial maths is in this profession. The children also asked other maths based questions about temperature and even how much money Ged earns in a year!
Needless to say the children in Year 6 were inspired by the visit and we look forward to continuing to build our relationship with the local fire service department.
