Year 6 have a fire, food and tool focus for the next 5 weeks.
This week they re-capped the skill of lighting a cotton wool fire with a Dragon’s Sneeze in a scallop shell.
Once lit, the fire was used to make a round of toast for everyone, that was smothered in lashings of butter and Chloe’s homemade strawberry jam- Yummy!
Many mallets were started, using saws, Mora knives, teamwork and the fallen branches from the Lime tree.
Elsewhere there the children made dens, bars, Karaoke stages, vehicles, discovered new trees saplings, made charcloth for future fire lighting from old jeans, got absolutely drowned in an unexpected downpour and generally had a marvelous time.
