YOUNGSTERS have spent an afternoon learning to survive in the wild – Bear Grylls style.
Children took to Rosliston Forestry Centre for its junior bushcraft day and picked up essential skills for a life outdoors.
The junior adventurers learned the art of making a stretcher to aid fallen comrades and also made whistles, were shown how to build a shelter entirely from natural materials and without tools, as well as how to start a fire – without matches, of course.
The day was a hit with everyone who took part and rangers were impressed with the children and the skills they took away.
The event was part of a full programme of activities that have been taking place throughout the school summer holidays to keep youngsters busy.
