Forest School – Fun with shelters and water

Today Year 6 were challenged with making a shelter using only a piece of tarpauling and a limited supply of rope. The children had to make sure that the shelter was water tight from above. This meant, if their tarpauling conatined holes, they must look at different ways in which to stop the water geting through. To make things a little more exciting when testing their designs, each group of children had to sit under their shelter whilst Mr Patterson and Mr Davis poured a jug of water over the top. Safe to say, all of the shleters held the water out and none of the groups got wet. Well done Year 6!!
