Just a short note to let everyone know how successful our model making was yesterday. We were lucky enough to have some helpers from P7, who supported the use of tricky Sellotape and cutting windows and doors out of the boxes. The children were thoroughly engaged and designed some very inventive models indeed.
As this was a Key Assessment Task, photos of each model with children’s and teacher’s comments will be sent home on Monday. The models will also make their way home at the end of term. This lesson gave the children the opportunity to practice problem solving, share materials, be creative and consider the different types of homes we have learnt about in our Houses and Homes topic.
Finally, can I say a big thank you for all of those who sent in boxes etc.for us to use. I am glad to say we had plenty, and I am very grateful for your support.
