Year 3H were set the task of building a mini den for a small creature, fairy, elf or whatever took their fancy. The den could be no higher than knee height and built using only natural materials. The children worked in small groups to create their dens and created dens both free standing and using trees for support. Afterwards the children shared their construction skills and ideas with the rest of the group. Next time the class will be able to use their developed skills to create different dens, learning from each other and themselves as they explore and try new ideas.
