Fire Safety

 

Today in forest school we learnt about fire safety discussed fire triangle. We used a fire steel to make sparks, help to build a fire and keep the fire going by adding more fuel.Finally we got the opportunity to cook on an open fire and lit a Kelly kettle to make hot chocolate for the group. We made pizzas and we ate them. Before we left the site we put the fire out thoroughly with water.
