Frances the firefly

Frances the Firefly has a tale to tell you.

Please take a moment to listen and watch her story or you can read her story here.

Can you help her re-tell her story?

Why not try her story quiz?

Would you like to make your own story with the roll a story activity?

Frances is a young firefly, she wanted to be able to do the things that the older fireflies could do.

Can you think of something you would like to do, but aren’t allowed as you are too young? It’s very annoying isn’t it? But it is for your safety and sometimes you have to wait until you are older and bigger.

Frances has some questions for you now you have heard her story

Frances didn’t want to wait and so went along with Charlie Cockroach even though she knew it was wrong.

Sometimes it is hard to say “No” to friend, even if you know it is wrong. Have a talk to a grown up about what you can do if someone wants you to do something that you don’t want to or know you shouldn’t.

During the story Frances had lots of different feelings. Even if someone doesn’t say how they are feeling you can sometimes tell from their face. Have a look at Frances’ Feeling activity sheet to see if you can work out what someone is feeling from their face. What could you do if you were feeling sad to make yourself feel better?

Frances has a rhyme she would like you to remember “Matches, Lighters, never touch, they can hurt you very much” Could you learn this and teach someone else in your home? Frances has made a picture of herself with her rhyme, why not print it out and colour it in to help you remember?

If you like colouring we also have a colour by numbers picture for you

As well as not touching matches and lighters, Frances wants you to know that you must be careful around things which get hot.  Do you know if it is safe to play or you need to stay away to keep you safe?

Frances is a Firefly, do you know the life cycle of a firefly? If you like animals have a look at our Sam’s Sad Day Story

Have you met Frances’ Insect Number Families?

Frances has lots of other fun activities for you:

Don’t forget France’s message “matches, lighters, never touch, they can hurt you very much”.
