Today is all about getting ready for our VE Day camp! We are thinking about what to take on our camp and practicing a basic camp skill.
🇬🇧 Watch the video of Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret on camp and notice the wartime safety practice they had to do.
⭐️Many families had air raid shelters in their back gardens. Build a shelter either inside or outside, using anything you are allowed to use – (blankets, cushions etc)
⭐️ Make a list of the things you would need for an overnight in a shelter or at an overnight camp
🇬🇧Learn some knots using string or wool or ribbon.
⭐️If you are age 5-7 use ribbon, string or wool to tie around sticks using a bow and leave the ends long like streamers
😍 If you are older than 7 watch this video for the challenges below…https://www.google.com/search?q=how+to+tie+basic+knots&oq=how+to+tie+&aqs=chrome.1.69i59l3j69i57j0l4.3676j0j8&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8#kpvalbx=_Tr6zXr_8DIyCgAaOv7KIBg84
⭐️If you are age 7-10 learn the clove hitch and reef knot
⭐️If you are age over 10 learn the clove hitch, reef knot and two others.
Good luck and happy camp preparation day!
ps this is has an easier explanation of the clove hitch – I like the two loop method! https://www.google.com/search?q=how+to+tie+a+clove+hitch&oq=how+to+&aqs=chrome.1.69i59l4j69i57j0l3.3092j0j8&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8#kpvalbx=_U7-zXsTEDtiD8gL4sZ2QBg93
