Year 5 Outdoor cookery, inspired by “The Explorer”

Year Five have been honing their survival skills. Now, they can use knives safely to cut up and prepare food, they can start a fire from scratch using flints without the need for matches and they can use the hot embers to cook their food.

They have been emulating the characters in the Year Five book (The Explorer by Katherine Rundell) and now can empathise with them further.

Our pupils showed wonderful resilience, determination and perseverance in the fire building exercise and thoroughly enjoyed the experience… and the delicious bean stew at the end!
