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 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.
