Pupils in Y3/4W and Y4/5R have been learning how to construct shelters using a wattle and daub technique. Their challenge was to build a shelter for a hedgehog. They had to use natural materials to create a structure or frame and then weave grasses, leaves and other materials from the Forest School, into the frame (wattle). To make the shelter warm and dry, they mixed leaves and grasses with mud to make a 'daub'.
As an extra challenge, each team had to apply their knot skills to make a campfire trivet.
Forest School Kings & Queens for this session were:
Year 3/4W - Oscar Landers-Mullins and Arisha Wright
Y4/5R - James Chapman, Brodey Morgan, Abbie Cooper and Krystal Mulcahy
