Forest School with Pearl Class

Home » News » Lighting Fires

Pearl Class enjoyed their Forest School session focused on Fire. First they played Ninja Squirrels to develop listening skills further and then they searched the school grounds for materials that they thought might burn. Next they discovered that there are three key elements or ingredients that are needed to start a fire: heat, fuel and oxygen. This is known as the fire triangle.

Heat: you need a heat source to start a fire and to keep it going.

Fuel: you need something that will burn to fuel your fire. Things to consider: fuel needs to be dry, you'll need to think about size and thickness, and how you arrange it.

Oxygen: fire needs oxygen to burn; when fuel burns it reacts with oxygen and this chemical reaction produces fire.

The children worked together to create five minute fires on which they tested the materials that they found earlier. Later the children toasted marshmallows and drank hot chocolate.
