Round the Campfire
Year 6 enjoyed another fun afternoon of activities during Forest School making charcoal. The children stripped wood and chopped it into pieces which were then placed into a tin with a hole in the top. Next the children collected wood and bark to use to build a fire. Once the fire was going Josh placed the tin into the middle of the fire so it would heat up. We could see the steam escaping from the tin through the hole. The children sang campfire songs as the fire blazed. Once the fire was put out we had a lovely box of charcoal stick which the children will use next week.
