Shelter building challenge!!
What an amazing and exciting afternoon we had!! We were buzzing and bouncing all the way over the field to the woodland area of the school grounds. Mr Taylor came in to help us and brought with him some tarpaulin, string and tools to build our shelters. We watched how to do it first and got some ideas and then it was our turn. The challenge was to make a shelter which gave us shade, kept us warm and kept us dry. We split into 2 teams (Team GS and Team T). How exciting it was!!
Team GS successfully made a shelter which gave shade and it was big enough to keep the whole class dry (when Mr Taylor didn't spray it underneath!!). We are not sure how warm we would be after a while though .
Team T had a great idea and successfully made a shelter but the wind grabbed hold of it and the bucket was not heavy enough to keep it down. They sat some children on the edge to hold it down but wow they all got wet when they let go of the edge .
We had sooooooo much fun!!
Shelter building fun in year 2!!
The challenge was to build a shelter for one of the three little pigs and keep him dry, protected from the sun and warm. We had a great afternoon and we had some superb ideas. We can't wait to build some children sized shelters.
Welcome back to school 2G
Another month on and a new school year begins. It's a little bit different for 2G as we are all still together yay!!! I'm looking forward to an exciting year together.
We are beginning the year with our 'Shelters' topic. We will look at the three little pigs story and make our own versions, build shelters for the pigs and even build shelters for ourselves later in the half term. Watch this space for pictures the of all of the fun we have and of our learning!!!
