During the summer term, the Ardvreck kids muck about in the ‘Dens and Dams’. 

There is a little bubbling brook that runs through the school. At lunch times and after school, the kids put on their wellies (gumboots) and dam the river! They block it up completely using rocks, mud and leaves, and can completely redirect the course the water follows. They wait for the water to build up behind the dams and then ‘boost’ (knock over)their dam. They all watch and scream as the water cascades down and knocks over everyone elses dam! It’s great fun.


They also make little dens in the forest out of tree branches, leaves, rocks, flowers… anything they can find really. It’s their own little hut that they play in and get very protective of!
