This morning the whole school built dens in the school grounds in support of Save the Children's Build-a-Den Day, an event that our School Council had asked us to support. The children worked in small groups and started by designing their den, making a list of all the materials they thought they would need and how much this would cost. Next they purchased their materials from the stalls in the school hall. After a lot of hard work, the dens were ready and the children were able to visit each others dens, paying 10p for each den. All the money raised will be sent to Save the Children. Many thanks for all the donations of cardboard boxes and other materials!
Update: We were very pleased to raise the sum of £78.69 for the charity.
