As I build a structure, I select blocks which are the same size and I create a pattern. I have to place the blocks on carefully to balance them. My friends have made a slide and when I say ‘go’ they knock down my structure then I rebuild it exactly the same way!
We even used the large planks as guitars!
As we play we use measuring skills.
We work with others and develop our problem solving skills.
We were building a house using the large blocks . We used tools and took on the roles of the different people needed to build a house. We had to plan and work together and we had to take risks as we climbed up to construct the roof.
We even decided to build a shop for the workers to go to when they had a break!
