Fire Safety Code Buster (Smoke Alarms Save Lives)


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 introducing the topic of smoke alarms and their importance to children.

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 support learning about the importance of smoke alarms.  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 - Smoke Alarms Save Lives' resource which is pinned below as 'Resource 1'.
