Fire safety - 6th December 2017


During this session the children were shown how to safely light and extinguish a candle using a match. This activity was done one-to-one with an adult. The purpose of the activity was to:

  • help develop resilience, as many children find this action quite hard to master
  • help develop listening skills and following multi-part instructions, and
  • give children an understanding of the safety measures needed around matches, candles and fire.


The activity is a precursor to using a fire steel.

We used leaves creatively to make pictures and crowns!

We played stick games!

When we were playing with our sticks we had to work together as a team and talk to each other to have fun.  We had also selected our sticks independently using three different measurement criteria.
