PCSO Charlotte Morris was delighted to see that the children knew the meaning behind the song, and that they had an understanding of which emergency service to call.

Rocking Horse Day Nursery manager Kim Espiner said: “Following the children’s interest in the emergency services, nursery practitioners Lucy Brown, Rachael Gulliver and I planned a topic around 999 and found a song that was easy for the children to learn and ran alongside other activities we were doing at that time.

“The children had great fun learning about the emergency services and how they can help them should they ever need to call.”
