We continued with building our wikii-up today. The children needed to get small sticks and put them on the frame horizontally then collect leaves in armfuls and place them like building blocks from the base up. This is harder than it sounds and the children- with a little encouragement- worked really hard. The shelter is looking amazing. We moved onto fire making, collecting their own tinder and being shown how to correctly prepare and sort the wood. After lunch it was time to start. The children had listened to instructions brilliantly and all made fire. Two essential parts of our training completed.
