This term Adventurers have been making shelters using rope and tarps. They have been using the knots they practiced last term to hold the tarps in place.
This term Adventurers have been learning how to tie a selection of knots. First they looked at the timber hitch which can be used for pulling a log along the ground. The children had a race to see if their timber hitch would hold. They also practiced square lashing and then made frame for a bird hide, which all the KS2 children used in the RSPB bird count. Finally the children learned how to tie a sheer lashing. All of these knots will be used next term when they will be building dens.
Adventurers also learned how to identify native birds that they might find on our school grounds. They put this into practice when spotting birds for the RSPB bird count.
