Stig of the Dump - Den Building - Year 4 (9.6.21)

In year 4, we have been reading Stig of the Dump.  Stig is a Cave man who lives in a dump and likes to making things out of rubbish.  Today, we went to the Forest School Area and had a fantastic time building our own dens.  We tested out how good our dens were against stamping earthquakes and howling blowing wind. Luckily, we are excellent at making dens and they definitely would of protected us if we had to live in one. We made camp fires to cook on.  We invented our own instrument and made a musical band.  To finish off our morning, we made maps of where Stig would live.  It was a great morning enjoyed by children and staff!
