Maths Code Breaker - Smoke Alarms Save Lives


Whether covering the topic of keeping safe in PSHE or looking for a unique maths activity to challenge and motivate, this resource is perfect. Challenge children to crack the code and reveal the hidden fire safety message.  This engaging code breaker activity provides children with the opportunity to practise their maths 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

Encourage children to engage in their maths learning with this fun cross-curricular activity.  Children need to solve the calculations and and once they know the answer, find the letter in the code.  Once all letters have been found, the hidden message will be revealed.  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 may find this activity too much of a challenge, they can still join in the code breaker fun by attempting the 'Fire Safety Code Buster (Smoke Alarms Save Lives)' activity which is pinned below as 'Resource 1'.
