Which material is the best to make a house with?

Today Year 2 investigated which materials were suitable to make houses. We looked at the story of 'The Three Little Pigs' and tried to make houses out of straws, wood and bricks.

 

Here we are making our houses and testing them in the same way the Big, Bad Wolf did!

Class Exhibition

 

Thank you so much to all the parents who came to our first ever Class Exhibition. It was lovely for the children to share their learning with you.

 

During our Innovate week we were tasked by Sea Life Brighton to design an aquarium tank for them. We used model magic and cardboard boxes to make creatures and the tanks. All children displayed incredible team work and resourcefulness in the creation process and here are the finished designs.
