Den Building

Yesterday was our last outdoor session with Steve and we were doing den building!!

Each group had 6 sticks, 4 pieces of rope and 2 plastic sheets and we had to build a shelter that we could all sit in.

Steve showing us how to tie the sticks together





It was a lovely sunny afternoon but it was very windy. Sadly there are no photos of the finished shelters as the wind blew a lot of the sheets off of the poles!! It was a great session though and we will miss Steve coming in.

    I loved making the den. It was really hard making it.
    the hardest part it when we put the cover on the roof.
    I wish we can go back to school to do p.e with steve browwors.

    Hi, my name is Arshvir. I liked your pictures of den building because it reminds me of when certain people (including me,) went to the woodlands. Me and my friend, Mateusz built a colossal den for animals living in the woodlands.
