Our children were very lucky to experience a new activity this year called Survivor. Groups 1 and 3 experienced it this morning and Group 2 are very excited about their chance tomorrow.
It all started with a ‘plane crash’ and a limited supply of objects. Their task was to build a shelter with a plastic sheet, some string and any pieces of branch or tree trunks they could find in the woods.
Much discussion took place, mainly about how to make it big enough to fit them all in! Different groups had very different ideas but all of them created wonderful shelters. Mrs Atkinson was delighted with the team work the children showed. The instructor showed them some other survival skills which some mastered quickly and others took a little bit longer!!!!!
