The Fire Engine Came to School Today

by Elizabeth Sach
In stock

This assembly story about traumatic experiences is taken from More Brilliant Assembly Stories, written by Elizabeth Sach and published by Brilliant Publications.

When a young child goes through a particularly traumatic experience it can be very hard for them to move forward from the residing negative associations and fright they feel as a result.

For Danny, being told that he and his peers are being treated to a visit from a Fire Brigade at school reignites his recollections of “the dark December night” when he was awoken by the house setting on fire during a Christmastime spent at his Grandparents. He becomes very distressed by his memories but is able to overcome this when he talks to a kindly, empathetic firefighter who makes Danny feel safe again and reminds him of finding the “silver lining”.

E-resource File

Danny is able to understand that the Fire Brigade are a very positive force; reinforcing to primary school children how important the Emergency Services are in our society and encouraging them to have faith.

Danny conquers his fear by listening to and learning logic and by trusting in the kindness of others, and he is even motivated towards heroism.

This assembly story provides comfort for any children dealing with similar trauma and empowers them to find the same strength.
