Year 4 – Fire Making – Forest School

Year 4 spent the afternoon revisiting their fire making skills. It began with children having to name and critique some pre-made fire lays in the poly tunnel before splitting into two groups to complete two separate challenges. The first task involved building a range of fire lays thinking about the different features of each and in which situations different fire lays may be more beneficial than others. In the second activity, children were tasked with using flint and steel to make sparks for fire lighting. All the children were able to do this and built on their knowledge of the various types of fire lays and their purposes. Next week, we are looking at combining the two skills to begin making our very own fires with the eventual aim of cooking Ancient Egyptian flatbreads.
