Fire Steels and Sparks

This week, to link in with Bonfire night, the children in classes 3H, 4D and 6W learnt how to use a fire steel, but rather than me being the teacher, the children were the teachers!

After having a talk about health and safety and how to use a fire steel safely, the children worked as teams teaching each other how to use a fire steel. Team work was essential and the children worked well encouraging each other, helping each other and giving each other tips on, not only how to use a fire steel to confidently create a spark, but how to use a fire steel safely.

By the end of the session every child was able to create a spark confidently and safely.
