This week, Year 5 and 6 completed the ultimate fire challenge! They had to start a fire and keep it alight for the longest time with only a small amount of natural fuel. They had four cotton wool balls, five sticks, 1/2 a egg box and a fire lighter.
The children quickly discovered how tricky it was to keep the fire going in the wind and a top tip of savouring their fuel sources to keep it going.
The teams were really creative and the longest fire time was over eight minutes!
The children enjoy their Forest School and we are grateful to our volunteers who give up their time to come and help.
