What We'll Build

12th March 2021
The Foundation children have enjoyed exploring "building" using different tools and materials. They have used rulers and measuring sticks to help refine their work. Lots of wonderful language and turn taking as they build their dream homes, rockets, castles and high walls.
 
Linked to our community topic 'What We'll Build', the children in Year One have enjoyed exploring tools. First we studied the different tools in the book. We named them and discussed their purpose. The children all discussed the health and safety aspects we need to consider when we use tools and all worked sensibly to saw wooden poles into different lengths. They will use these skills to design and build a simple miniature garden structure such as a shed, summerhouse or pagoda.
