Year 4 made their own camp fire and learnt which material to use and how to light the fire themselves. The children chose materials which would burn the longest to keep their fires going.

Forest School in an inspirational process that offers children and young people the opportunities to achieve, develop confidence and self-esteem, through hands-on learning experiences in a local woodland environment.
