Fires and Tools

Just a note on fires and the use of tools

Bushcraft and fires can be an essential part of Forest School. I use tools and fires in my sessions. I only do this when I think it appropriate to the children’s level of learning. I need to feel confident the children will respond well and be confident in the rules surrounding the use of tools and fire. The introduction of these to the sessions are an indicator that the children are responding well to the Forest School ethos.
