This week at Squirrel School the children have started to practice fire lighting skills. Using fire steels and with 1:1 adult support the children have made sparks. Next week we will develop on from this by attempting to light a small fire using our new skills. We are going to build up to lighting a larger fire that we will be cooking our dinner on.

Week beginning: 2.9.2019
The children had a lot of fun exploring the meadow at Squirrel School. They came across a dead rat, the children began to think about how it might have died and ways to say goodbye to it. Some children chose to pick wildflowers and fruit to leave as a farewell gift, others said kind words and some sang. Steve, Short Woods site manager came and took the rat to its final resting place.
