Firewise has started. For the next two weeks we are working through the Firewise material provided by the New Zealand Fire Service. Today, we looked at these photos and talked about safe and unsafe fire (and heat) and how to behave safely around fire. Ask your child to talk you through what they remember. They had some lively discussion today in our classroom.
The Little Einsteins have brought home a book to work through with you as a family. It's a great resource for helping prepare your family for a fire emergency - though of course we all hope to avoid one! There is a DVD in it, too. Parents, I recommend watching by yourself so you are familiar with the content before watching it as a family.
