The Children have been learning about The Three Billy Goats Gruff. They have used their building and imagination skills to make bridges that are strong and beautiful to look at.
The Nursery children have been using their skills of cutting and sticking to make models. Aren't they amazing!
Year 2 children have used the skills of cutting, joining and assembling to help them make a puppet for story telling. They evaluated their puppets, asking questions like - Is it strong enough?
Year 2 have been learning about The Great Fire of London. They have learnt that strong winds caused the fire to spread quickly. They evaluated a variety of windsocks that could measure wind direction.
Each group presented what they had discovered, to the rest of the class.
Year 2 designed and made their own windsocks after evaluating others. They looked at different designs and evaluated their fitness for purpose. They used some of the good ideas they had found out to help them design their own.
Now we need a windy day so that the designs can be tested and modified.
