LKS2 – Fire Making – Forest School

Today, despite the cold and in glorious winter sunshine, pupils in LkS2 progressed their learning in fire making from last week. Working in groups, teams had to combine their knowledge of fire lays and how to construct them and how to create a spark using flint and steel to start their own fires whilst managing their, and each other’s, risk at all time by observing the safety rules discussed. Despite the cold air and multiple failures in lighting fires, all groups throughout the sessions were determined and resilient, even when things didn’t go to plan, whilst demonstrating excellent levels of teamwork and communication. When reviewing and reflecting on the session, pupils were able to describe successes and what had brought about it whilst also pinpointing where things went wrong, articulating reasons for failures and what they’d do differently next time. Well done LKS2!
