Vinehall Venturers made the most of the dry weather and fantastic grounds on Tuesday and were tasked to build a waterproof shelter with one tarpaulin and any natural materials in the woods.

After studying a few images of examples, the intrepid Year 5 groups set to work.

The teamwork and cooperation between the children was brilliant and all the groups succeeded in creating great structures that mostly stayed dry when the water bottle ‘shower’ came down on them.
