We have been learning about bonfire night in nursery and exploring ideas around how to keep safe. In preparation for bonfire night we had a small fire in a fire bowl in the nursery garden. All the three and four year old children were shown how to be safe around the fire. We used our sense of smell and sight to talk about the fire. We felt its heat on our faces and hands and we explored how fires can make changes to materials including cooking eggs, toast and warming milk for hot chocolate. With an adult to support, each child was given the opportunity to toast marshmallows over the fire. This was a wonderful experience for everyone involved.
