Fantastic Fire- Lighting in Year 5!

Thanks to our wonderful HSA, we have recently purchased equipment for children in our school to have the opportunity to learn fire-lighting skills, and the children in Year 5KH have recently had a go!

The children learnt about the fire triangle and discussed what they needed to create a fire. They understood that the fuel needed to be dry and they learnt about tinder, kindling and wood. The children were taught how to use knives safely to create their own piles of tinder to start the fire. They were also taught how to use fire strikers. It was a challenge to see who could keep their small fire alight for the longest! Have a look at the pictures below to see their work.
