Finally, we found water and the four tribes met for the first time. Unfortunately, there was a battle and two tribes got captured!!! The captured teams got blindfolded and the other teams had to carefully direct them back to camp! The children's listening skills and giving clear instructions were put to the test.

After months of living together the four tribes decided they got along. We played some balance and agility teamwork games just as the Vikings did!

DAY 3

In Y4, our DT focus is building structures. Using twigs and branches in the Forest School we made a structures at tall as possible to balance an egg on top! There were a number of proud children and smiley faces!

We also had to try and make a raft to float the egg!

Day 4

We made rivers using only foil and twigs found in the forest school! We used lots of river terminology and worked well as groups. Some worked better than others! What do you think made a good river?
