It was lovely to see the children in Key Stage 2 so excited yesterday during their weekly forest school lesson. The fire lighting session is always really enjoyed by the children.

Year 3 were introduced to flint and steel and they tried to make their own sparks with fire by friction.

Year 4 tried to light their own piece of cotton wool in a fire hole.

Year 5 and 6 learnt about the fire triangle and what is needed to keep a fire burning, exploring the woodland to try and find different fuels to keep a fire burning for 10 minutes.
