Expert Shelter Building

The weather can sometimes make finding warmth and shelter from the rain an impossibility during Forest School but luckily we’ve learned some new skills in order to make these fantastic shelters to keep use warm and dry when the weather turns!

We used different types of knots to; attach rope to the tree, tie two bits of rope together and to make holes for pegs to go into.

Finding the right height for our tarpaulin was important since they were all different sizes. We had to improvise with how we kept some of them up but we were all really pleased with how they turned out.
