The continued heatwave means wildfires are more of a threat than ever to our community, wildlife and countryside. Ask your children to find out more about the causes of wildfires and how we can all help to prevent them. Also ask them to research the impact wildfires have on nature and wildlife. They can find out more about heath-lands and then use this heath fire and mini-beasts worksheet to get started.
If your child/children complete any of the schools team challenges or projects we'd love to hear from you! If you email in photos of their completed work, we will issue them with their very own Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service certificate. Email in photos of any completed projects or challenges along with your child's name to firstname.lastname@example.org
