Some of year 4, 5 and 6 have been learning about what skills you might need if you were stranded somewhere to keep safe. We explored how to make clean water from a stream, river or ocean. We also researched what foods were safe to eat in the wild. We talked about protecting ourselves not only from the weather but also any animals that might prey on us.
We designed and then made a shelter that would protect us and learnt about two methods to make fire to help us cook, keep warm and also ward off animals and insects.
We ended the session with BBQ sausages and toasted marshmallows (which we know wouldn’t be available if we were stranded)!
