Fire Lighting

More children from Year 4 and 5 have been fire lighting using flint and steel. They have learned about how, in order to create fire, we need 3 things; oxygen, heat and fuel. We used cotton wool coated in Vaseline as our fuel, the air around us for oxygen and the flint and steel to create the heat.

We showed a lot of resilience when trying to spark the flint and steel and got a lot of pleasure out of keeping our hands warm on the fires we lit ourselves.
