Playing with Fire

This post has moved to a new location

Thanks for posting this. I belong to a family organization that regularly uses fire in its art and ceremonies. It hadn't occurred to me to find ways to do these things at school.

Hi Tom

Other than campfires at Scout events, and Guy Fawkes night we don't fully appreciate the cultural significance of fire in the way that others do perhaps.

However there is a move, particularly within the Forest School movement to give children opportunities to use fire. Also some pre-schools and elementary schools are looking more closely at ensuring the basic elements of earth, air, fire and water are covered naturally within their routines and curriculum.

Best wishes
