Trailblazers Y5/6 - rigging shelters in the wood

Endeavour were rigging tarps in the wood this week; they were split into teams of 5, and then had to: choose a location, string up a top rope using a timber hitch and sliding lock knot, make 4 tent pegs, pitch tarp.

Once rigged, they had 10 minutes to add some home comforts before testing commenced: were the knots secure? Would the pegs hold? Was it waterproof?

Team leaders delegated tasks well and all children supported and encouraged each other wonderfully. The winners were the Foresters with 90 points...but all teams did a great job!
