Year 3

We were all very excited to be leaving the school site and headed to the woods, just beyond the local allotments which we enjoyed along the way, pointing out and discussing everything growing.

The children learned how to build an A frame shelter and one using a tarpaulin.

They also made up lazer games using the extra rope.

We had a lot of fun!

“We built an A frame using sticks. We used forked sticks for the entrance and large logs at the side to make it safe and stable.” (Henry)

“By using the timber hitch knot we were able to tie the rope between two trees. It’s a sliding knot and tightens when you pull it.” (Eleanor)

“Me, George, Adam and Carrie made a tree house and put a ladder there. We introduced a door bell. If we had more time we would use this ivy to lash the sticks together.” (Freddie)

“I added to the lazer ropes for a game. If you touch one you will get electrocuted.” (Carrie)
