LKS2 – Shelter Building – Forest School

Today, LKS2 we have put their knot knowledge to the test by creating shelters using Bowline and Prusick knots. Teams were given a shelter building kit box which contained a tarp, tent pegs, paracord and a float line rope. After a crash course in how to erect the shelter correctly, children worked together and problem solved continuously to build a shelter that could keep them dry if it rained and could fit all members of the group inside. Afterwards, we reviewed and reflected on the session and discussed ways to improve our shelters next time.
