Dad’s Dinner

Dad’s Dinner tells the story of when a slight accident in the kitchen caused a fire. Listen or read to discover how Tim, Lilly and the rest of the family managed to Get Out, Stay Out and Call 999

Can you answer Dad’s Questions?

Can you put the pictures in the correct order and re-tell the story of Dad’s Dinner?

Can you name the character from the story based on what they did?

The fire started in the kitchen because Dad left the cooking to answer the telephone. Most fires in the home start in the kitchen.

It is really important that you are careful and safe in the kitchen, especially when someone is cooking.


It is fun to help with the cooking and baking, but you must remember to be careful.

Dad was trying to make sure that the children ate healthily and had some vegetables with their dinner.

You should try and eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetable a day. It is ok to have a treat sometimes. Can you sort this food into Healthy or a Treat?

Why not have a go at designing a healthy meal.

Can you make Alphabetical Food? Try and think of a type of food that starts with each letter of the alphabet, you can have a mix of healthy with the occasional treat!

It is really important that you stay fit and healthy, C19 Mini Superhero Holly knows how important it is, as do our firefighters. In the Be Firefit section, our firefighters will tell you about their favourite five a day and healthy snack of the week. Why not have a go at the firefighter challenges as well. Meet the Firefighter this week is Firefighter Paul, he has also made a special Make and Bake video of a special treat cake to make.

Can you remember what alerted everyone to the fire?

Was it :

  1. The smoke alarm beeping?
  2. Jack the Dog barking?
  3. Dad shouting?

It was the smoke alarm!

The family have a smoke alarm on the ceiling of each level of their home.

A smoke alarm is like a nose, it sniffs all the time! If it smells smoke it beeps loudly to let everyone know that it can smell smoke and to get out, stay out and call 999!

Jack the dog did bark to let everyone know and Dad shouted to the children, but this was only because they heard the smoke alarm.

To work a smoke alarm must have working batteries.

The family have a rhyme to help them remember to test their batteries: “Sniff sniff sniff, Beep Beep Beep; we test our smoke alarms once a week.”

If you hear your smoke alarm beeping you must think it is a real fire and:

You can call 999 for an emergency and ask for either:

You must only ever call 999 in a real emergency? Do you know who you can ask for help from when calling 999? What might you say if you call 999 in an emergency?

So you get out safely you must always walk, don’t run otherwise you could trip over.

It is a good idea to have a plan of what the whole family are going to do if there is an emergency.

Talk to your grown-ups and work out your Escape Plan.

What do they want you to do if the smoke alarm beeps, especially at night?

Things to think about are:

Draw or describe your escape plan.

Make sure everyone in your home knows what to do if there is a fire.

Practice your escape plan with your family.

Can you crack the code and find the secret message to help you and your family keep safe?

Have a go at playing the Fire Safety Game

Can you un-muddle the fire safety anagrams?
