Working Together

Today some children decided they wanted to build a bridge to get across the river. They had to work together to decide how to lift the plank safely and then how to balance it so they could walk along it. 
What do you need to remember to do when you are building using the crates and planks to keep yourself safe?

New Settings

We are going to create our own versions of the Bear Hunt story. Can you guess what our new setting might be?
