Our school’s den adventure

“Our Den Day was a fantastic success,” says Terri, a teacher at Shipbourne Primary.

“All the children raised sponsorship money before the big day, asking family and friends to support our project.

“We had lots of support and received lots of donations – not just money, but also den-building materials.

“The children spent the morning designing, experimenting and building in teams, with some really creative ideas developing. Every team’s shelter was different – and they were put to the test when starting pouring with rain at the end of the morning!”

Our Den Day helped the children to realise the value of a safe, secure and weather-proof roof over their heads and raised their awareness of those less fortunate around the world. We’ll definitely be doing it again.”
