Wee Willie Winkie investigates light and reflective materials. He chooses the most suitable equipment for going out on a dark night.
Wearing reflective materials helps other people to see you in the dark. However, they will only work when a source of light, such as a torch, lamp or candle, reflects off them.
This could be used as a discussion point to talk about what happened that night which caused the accident. It could allow a discussion on when and why people wear reflective clothing. The children could design the ideal outfit, including items such as torches, to keep Wee Willie Winkie safe as he travels in the dark. This could lead to an art lesson in which the children design posters explaining how to be safe in the dark.
