Show an interest in the activity that the child is doing, look at what is going on and discuss questions such as: • How far is it to the ground? • How far to the top? • How will you get down? • How safe is that going to be? • How do your friends get up or down? • How could you hurt yourself doing that? • How will you make sure you don’t get hurt? • Go slower, hold on, Look, listen. For younger children get down to their line of sight and look up at the climbing frame and say: • How tall is the climbing frame? • Are you going to be okay? ]
