LKS2 – Class 5 – Forest School

Class 5 had a fab, if a little chilly, Forest School session this morning! We started by looking at the fire triangle and discussing the three things that are needed to make a fire. Then we learned what a fire lay is, and explored the 6 different types of fire lay. We gathered sticks of various sizes and tried to make every type, including a teepee and an altar. We had pictures to help and had to use a lot of resilience to recreate them, especially when we had to balance sticks and they kept falling over! We also all had a go at using a flint to create a spark, and some of us even managed to set some cotton wool on fire. Hopefully in the future we’ll use these skills to start a proper fire and maybe even make some hot chocolate!
