Shelter Building


Dear parents/carers of year 5,

After half term, we will be continuing our topic of survival for an extra week; the children’s final challenge will be shelter building. If you have any shelter building material at home, that you are happy to donate to the school, it would be gratefully received.

Useful materials mayinclude:

  • bamboo sticks
  • tarpaulin
  • rope
  • string
  • cardboard boxes
  • tent pegs
  • old sheets

Please note: all children will take part in this activity regardless of whether they are able to provide materials or not.

Shelter building will take place on Friday 8thJune.


Kind regards,


Mr Faithfull and Mrs Colgrave
