Shelter Building, Phase 1

Our children are really lucky to have the grounds we have – 23 acres of fields and woodland – and we try to make the most of this fantastic resource. Today our Year 1 and 2 pupils were building shelters. It was interesting to watch them work: some great teamwork & there are one or two real leaders, but as builders…………..

The majority of groups caught on to the idea of needing a roof. Some were ambitious and wanted a two story shelter. One group concentrated on the add ons – hanging basket, water softener, chimney etc but forgot their main task. When we reviewed their work it was decided that not one of the shelters was fit for purpose – maybe in Phase 2 they will be!
