How to Light and Use Fire Safely
Lighting, using and enjoying fire is a fundamental part of being in an outdoor environment whether it be for warmth, cooking on or simply enjoying during discussion, storytelling and review of activities. It can also form a valuable part of science based teaching and learning for pupils of all ages.
We recommend you locate a site and spend time designing and installing a safe environment for lighting fires together with a set of guidelines for effective and safe practice for pupils and staff. The following document is designed as a sample but can be tailored to your school site and the activities you may be doing with your pupils. Spend time modifying this to produce your own version.
