Save the Children – Den Day
Despite the weather, the children all took part in building dens today. In each class, they split in to their team groups and created a den out of the items in class and the cardboard, tarpaulins, sheets and pegs kindly brought in for the day. Thank you for helping children get things together. The children enjoyed building their dens – some with a number of rooms and comfortable surroundings for reading in – and were also sensible about the reason behind it. All over the world, there are people who don’t have houses and the facilities we take for granted. The act of den building reinforces that while a den is fun for a short while, having to live in something similar would be extremely tough. The money we raised will go to supporting children in such vulnerable situations.
