Pre-Prep Den Building Extra
This extra has been a hit from the start and a happy band of explorers have certainly put their den building skills to the test. Each week the children ventured into the woods, foraging for fallen sticks and branches.
They have also had the chance to mud slide, scramble through the hedgerows and roll down the banks which has caused great amusement. Once the sticks were gathered it was a case of dragging them back to base camp to start constructing their dens. Four dens were built of varying sizes, and grit and determination went into all of them.
Unfortunately Hurricane Desmond put paid to a few dens this weekend and poor old Father Christmas also took a battering, however Wendy being the tough gnome that she is braced the storm in her swimsuit and is firmly ensconced for the winter months in the Y2 den.
