Folly Farm Day 3

On our final day at Folly Farm we headed back up into the woods. David, our instructor, talked about the different reasons for building a shelter. The children then split into two groups to design and build their own waterproof shelter. They were warned a storm was coming (David, Mrs Gregory and Mrs Gibbons armed with cups of water). The children soon found out how successful at keeping them dry their shelters were!

Afterwards, we spent some time around the camp fire and the children learnt about the fire triangle. They then tried lighting their own fires and toasting marshmallows. 
Then, sadly, it was time to leave Folly Farm and return home. The children were a credit to both their parents and the school and had a fantastic time away.
