Survival Skills

Yesterday, on the 27th of March 2017, Year 6 experienced the intriguing event of bushcraft; in these activities we learnt basic survival skills including making fires and shelters. We were taught by qualified professionals that made sure we had a magnificent time whilst we were extremely safe. We made fires using cotton that we set alight using flint and metal then we put hay and sticks on the small flames making them enlarge and turn into proper flames. We also made shelters for stuffed toys to shelter inside to protect them from water. They were constructed using irregular-shaped wood, sticks and leaves. For the task of filtering water, we used charcoal, sand and stones. We also made wooden pencils with elder wood and a blade that we kept away from our chests. Overall we had an amazing time and we would do it again in a flash!
