For our older learners, I love these sets of books, it’s like a colourful version of Horrible Histories. And that says singed as in burnt by fire, instead of singed, la la la (as it’s not a word) and a play on signed, very funny! I am easily amused. Maybe that’s why I like children’s books so much.
For our younger learners, although it will help to remind everyone, head to the Cheshire Fire website, who teamed up with Fireman Sam to give tips on staying safe this November.
Also, use this opportunity to pick up some other Fireman Sam books to read, and this lends itself nicely to talking about People Who Help Us which is a topic in EYFS. Get some role play going to embed fire safety.
You can only buy this book second hand, as it’s from 1988! Head to eBay or WorldofBooks.com for a pre-loved copy at £1.99.
Fire works is a wonderful way into honing those fine motor skills and talking about shapes and colours with your toddlers and pre- school aged children.
For older learners, I love the Owl that was Afraid of the Dark, where animals tell them what they love about the night, Bonfire Night and Fireworks being something that they love.
