Today in Forest school, we linked our learning to our new topic: WWII. After discussing what an Anderson Shelter was, and how it was used to protect against bomb raids in the war, the children were tasked with designing, building and evaluating their own versions. Initially, the children had to make miniature shelters to protect their mini soldiers from ‘Pine cone bombing’ from the staff. After that, they were challenged to take their building techniques to create their own life sized shelters. Afterwards, the children evaluated their shelters, comparing it to the criteria stipulated at the beginning of the lesson. There were some truly extravagant creations! Well done everyone.
