Forest School Term 1 Week 2

This week at Forest School we built a camp and had a go at lighting our own fires. First we learnt about the fire triangle; a fire needs oxygen, heat and fuel. Next we opened a cotton wool pad and added Vaseline. Finally we used a fire steel to ignite the cotton wool – we waited until the fire had died before we placed it into a bucket of water. We had great fun learning about this.
