Last time I took these two boys to the woods they were asking me about flint and steel as they had seen it in Minecraft. Â This week we tried to use the Flint and steel, it really is difficult to create a spark but we managed a few because we persevered. I showed the boys how to safely use the fire steel, they both managed to create sparks when they mastered the technique, again they really had to persevere. What I was most impressed with wasn’t only how they stretched their perseverance muscles but how they responded to not being successful. We talked about how it’s ok to not be able to do everything or for things not to go right, and it gave us chance to be able to try and work out why maybe it wasn’t working. Well done boys!
