Given the challenge of building a den in the Nature Garden takes real team work and patience. This doesn't just happen! It's a skill that needs developing. It is important to listen to each-other so that things get done and we can rise to the challenge. Here you can see the children learning how to use tools to cut straight sticks from Hazel. Then different tools strip off the bark to make some smart building materials. More measuring and cutting is required to make the dens and try out ideas.
