Den Day STEM Challenge - Build a structure that stands

To support pupils taking part in Save the Children's Den Day, use these resources to challenge children to build a structure that stands, out of everyday materials.

The accompanying presentations for KS1 and KS2 can be used to help children learn about the impact of natural disasters and how families can lose their homes.

These resources have been specifically designed to use for Save the Children's Den Day on Friday 16 June. Schools around the UK will be building dens out of everyday materials and raising money to help give more children around the world a safe place to shelter.

Rewarding your hard-working pupils by giving them the chance to play games together is a staple feature of the last few days of term. Send young learners on a hunt for treasure with this pirate-themed board game, while older students can come up with a silly tongue-twister about themselves and their peers using this simple template.

Put the strong relationships that have been built up over the year to the test with this collection of physical activity group tasks. Plus, keep up critical thinking skills right until the end with these strategy board games.


Treasure Hunt Board Game

A board game with a Pirate theme. Players move around the desert island collecting and losing gold coins along the way. Full instructions included. Game Board needs to be A3, other elements A4. Full instructions included: the game has lots of opportunity to develop vocabulary and discussion. Sassoon infant font throughout. Game could be expanded to a data handling acivity if desired.

Create a tongue twister - silly stuff.

Activity that I used during the 'silly stuff&' activity. Each child starts with a table (half page). They write their name. They pass the paper around to the person to their left on their table and that person has to write the next section (what they did), but it has to begin with the same letter as the name of the person who&';s sheet it is. Then they pass it around again and the next person writes where it happened and again this needs the alliteration. And so on... You should end up with a tongue twister based around each child's name.

Team Building Games

13 team building game task cards which I have used to great effect in PE lessons around the world to improve team cohesion and break physical boundaries. I normally use this in the first week of the year, when the kids have not got their routines and PE kits sorted. These activities can be used across the age range, from 7-16 years old. Some may be better for older kids, some younger... you decide! :-)
