Raft Building

In small teams, you will design and create your own raft in which to paddle across our pond. You will be taught useful knots and techniques for constructing a strong and sturdy raft and how to do this safely. Once the raft is on the water and your team aboard, use it to paddle across the pond, racing the other team. Raft races and various games mean you should be prepared to get wet!

Example learning actions:

  • Be physically active in the outdoors
  • Develop paddling skills
  • Gain a greater knowledge of water safety
  • Plan and design a water worthy craft
  • Develop problem solving, teamwork and communication skills
