In our last forest school session for the year, Year 5 Nurture Group brought together many of the skills they have been learning this year: whittling skills, campfire building and campfire lighting. The children are now so skilled that they needed minimal input from Mrs. Villalobos and they independently built a campfire, correctly layering the kindling and dry sticks. They used the fire steels to create a spark and light the campfire. The children safely used sheath knives to whittle their marshmallow sticks to a point. Finally, after all the hard team work, they toasted their marshmallows. Happy times!
