Challenge children to crack the code and reveal the hidden fire safety message. This engaging code buster activity provides children with the opportunity to practise their number recognition and counting skills as well as utilising their reading skills. The hidden safety message within this activity is a great way of reminding children of what they need to do in an emergency.
How To Use
In this activity, each number represents a letter, match each number to the letter in the code bar to crack the code and discover the important safety message. This resource links to the PSHE 'Keeping safe' unit of work and can be used to reinforce learning around calling 999 in an emergency. When the hidden message is revealed, it could also provide a stimulus for discussions about fire safety in the home and the steps we can take to help keep our families safe from harm. For those children who need a further challenge, they may want to try out the 'Maths Code Breaker - Dial 999' resource which is pinned below as 'Resource 1'.
