Today we were lucky enough to welcome Chris into Year 1, who spent the day teaching us all about survival! We built dens, learnt how to light a fire and also used compasses to complete a treasure hunt. The children worked in groups to build a den using bamboo sticks, waterproof sheeting and camouflage netting, showing what fantastic communication and team work skills they all have. Chris then put the dens through the ultimate test - a bucket of water! Most groups managed to stay dry, although a few screams were heard. Our survival day has really brought our topic to life, and we think that the children really would be able to survive a night in the woods now!
