Year 4 – Fire Lays – Forest School

Year 4 have continued to learn about starting fires by revisiting fire lays after last week’s session where we all failed wonderfully to light and maintain a fire independently. We used the previous session to review and reflect on where things had gone wrong and the fine details as to why we couldn’t light a fire. Children were able to discuss areas to improve and then create solutions to overcome the problems and barriers they encountered last week. We then worked as teams to create fire lays which would set on fire in readiness for next week’s sessions where pupils will try again. Groups persevered with their fire lays and during our review and reflection at the end of the session they all decided that their fire lay making skills had improved and were full of confidence for the next session where they will be lighting fires and keeping them alive for a longer period of time.
