Pupils needing extra support: In the Activity: Possible hazards, the children could circle things that might be a hazard and draw pictures to show what might happen. – for example, circle the kettle, and draw it falling off the cooker.
Pupils working at greater depth: In the Activity: Possible hazards the children should be challenged also to describe how the hazards could be minimised as they identify them in the room.
