We started looking at 'fire' as a topic in Forest School on Friday. We started by making miniature fire lays (looking at the pros and cons of each) with cocktail sticks. You can see in the pictures a 'login cabin' (waffle) lay, a 'lean to' and a 'teepee'. We then walked through fire safety procedures, PPE and basic first aid for burns and scalds. Every student managed to use fire strikers to make a spark! Then one of students lit a teepee fire using only strikers, cotton wool and tinder. A great session to introduce us to fire on a small-scale.
