So the final week was upon us! This whole term with the Year 2 children has been fantastic! They have shown great teamwork skills, resilience and imagination over the 6 weeks and I am am sure that this will continue with the Year 6 children after half term.

We tidied, we explored and worked together. With the main focus of the session being fire lighting we spent a good amount of time talking about the process. What you would need to light it; the fact that a lot of the smaller sticks on the woodland floor would be wet following the previous day’s rain; the three elements of the fire triangle; safety. The children were quite aware of what was needed, some also showed good recall from their brief introduction to fire when they visited the woods in Year 1.

With support from the adults present each group managed to get a little blaze going, one was even tended by Mr Bright who ended up havincopy-of-october-butterflies-and-dragonflies-035g a small group sat with him nice and calmly, a lovely sight in a busy last week of term.  

At the end of the session the children were given hot chocolate and marshmallows! A warm and tasty treat! As usual there was many a marshmallow dropped into the fire, sticky fingers, sneaky helpings of thirds and lot and lots of smiles.

A well deserved break for all of the children and staff at Laira Green and then straight back into the swing of things with Year 6!

Until then,

Mr Blake
