Follow these top tips to stay safe on bonfire night as researched by girls during Thursday block sessions:

Keep fireworks in a closed box
Follow the instructions on each firework
Light all fireworks at arm’s length
Stand well back
Never go back to a lit firework
Never put fireworks in your pocket
Never throw fireworks
Keep Pets indoors
Sparklers can be beautiful and enjoyable for young children but adults must be aware of their potential. Sparklers are the cause of a disproportionate number of injuries but only a few simple precautions are necessary.
Always supervise children with sparklers.
Teach them to hold the sparkler at arms length, but not near anyone else
Sparklers are not for the under 5s. They will be labeled as such and it is your responsibility.
Have a container of water handy, big enough for the spent sparkler. Dump the sparkler in it as soon as it goes out.

They also found out that last year 19.6 million firework injuries were reported at A&E departments.
Last year most injuries that occurred were burns, primarily to the hands, fingers, head, face, eyes and ears.

The girls then made videos to get their messages across.

Watch this video which some of them made today or take a look at ROSPA’s website for further information.
