Last week, the children in Year 1 had an adventure in the forest, with a shelter and den-making activity to apply the skills of their current Unit of Inquiry, 'Where We Are in Place and Time'.
Under the expert eye of Miss Dawson, the children set about finding a suitable place to build their dens, using sticks and logs to create the structure, even adding pine cones and fallen leaves for decoration!
They all worked together tremendously well, helping each other to carry the larger items and solving the problem of how to hold the shelter up and how to fill in the gaps between the sticks. The children found sticks to make tools to shape and bend their forest finds, and even used some flatter logs to add seating to their dens. It was a fantastic morning and Mrs Fynn was very proud of the children’s results.
