ADVENTURE: Pupils at Nelson Academy enjoying their Den Day for Save The Children.

Pupils at Nelson Academy in Downham Market got creative during a charity Den Day.

The national fundraising event was organised by Save The Children to highlight the importance of shelter.

Schools and community groups up and down the country took part on Friday, collecting sponsorship or making a donation to take part in the day.

Youngsters at Nelson Academy brought materials in from home to build their dens in small groups.

Glen Rossiter, assistant principal key stage two, said: “It was lovely to spend an  afternoon in the sun working together to create dens. The children really got to showcase their creativity and were immensely proud of their work.”
