Virtual learning- school safety visit

Sometimes the Fire Fighters visit you at school and teach you about keeping safe at home, calling 999, Stop Drop and Roll and the role of the Fire Service. Kempston White Watch have created a video version for you to watch, featuring Frances the Firefly storytime.


Activity ideas:

Why not read the story for yourself:

Could you complete the colouring sheet to remind you about what you have learned?

Could you write your own guide or create a poster for Frances to keep her and the other fireflies safe?

Could you write a book review of the story to share with your family and friends? What did you think?
