Working together to prepare today’s children for the challenges of tomorrow.

P2M World of Work


Today P2M have been investigating new construction toys. We have been using our skills to build structures, make gears, design and create animals and generally using our imagination.

Our first key question was…”What could we do with this equipment?”  So we had a free play to begin with before we looked at the instructions or pictures.

Then our second key question was…”How could we teach this to P1 children?” So we had to think about the language we used that would help others.

We discussed how all of our new construction activities would help us build skills that we would need when we grew up.

“I think I would like to be a mechanic and use the gears to make bits move.” Jack

“I would like to be a builder and actually make buildings!” Poppy

“I would like to be a joiner because I liked fitting the wooden parts together to make something.” Logan

It was a fun problem solving session!
