Detailed guidance on using this resource alongside the story can be found in the related lesson plan 'The Birthday Cake Mistake (Know Your Address)' which is linked below. This resource could also be used alongside the '999 Role Play' activity which provides children with the opportunity to practise what information they need to give during a 999 call.
