LKS2 – Fire Lays – Forest School

Today, whilst sheltering from the torrential rain in the polytunnel, pupils in LKS2 began learning about the ‘fire triangle’ and how to construct fire lays. To begin with, groups had to identify different types of fire lays Mr Gamble had built and critique them against the laws of the ‘fire triangle.’ Children were able to explain features of the fire lays which were good as well as mistakes Mr Gamble had made! Afterwards, groups were then challenged to make their own fire lays which included teepees, log cabins and lean-tos. Whilst constructing them, teams had to think about air flow, heat and fuel ensuring they would be successful in lighting a fire.
