Maths Code Breaker - Stop, Drop, Roll


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 reminding children of what they need to if their clothes catch fire.

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 would be a great addition to the animated 'Bitesize Video - Stop, Drop and Roll' in which Firefighter Jack explains the Stop, Drop and Roll technique.   The video also has an accompanying lesson plan which provides details on how to develop a short practical lesson that encourages the children to practise the 'Stop, Drop and Roll' technique together.  Both the Bitesize Video and the accompanying lesson plan can be found linked below. 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 (Stop, Drop and Roll)' activity which is pinned below as 'Resource 1'.
