This afternoon, in the Forest School, our Reception children enjoyed some campfire cooking and learnt about fire safety. They shared stories about Bonfire night and we discussed how to stay safe around fire, so we can all enjoy it. The children ate caramelised pears and got very sticky fingers. They demonstrated great confidence in entering and exiting the fire pit, following the routine that they had learnt in the nursery. The aim is that these routines become second nature to the children, this keeps them safe, enabling a wider variety of fire based activities as the children progress through school. Helping children to experience the benefits of risk in a outdoor environment improves their confidence and understanding of the wider world.
