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 not to touch matches or lighters.
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 the important safety message can either provide an introduction or will help to reinforce previous learning about fire-safety and the dangers of playing with matches and lighters. The Birthday Cake Mistake' story book which is linked as a related resource below, would be an excellent resource to extend this learning further. For those children who need a further challenge, they may want to try out the 'Maths Code Breaker - Matches and Lighters' resource which is pinned below as 'Resource 1'.
