What is important to me ?

While working together to make a model of the world the children have been discussing what matters to them.

The children thought that ” it’s important to have friends, kind friends”, “I like to choose what to play” “that I feel safe when I go somewhere new” and that “I like having a happy house” all relevant and important rights to us all.

Here we are developing our fine motor skills by tearing up the newspaper into long strips and applying it to our balloons.

Next we are developing our problem solving skills by building a wooden triangle for the model to sit on “so it will be safe and not roll away”.  Then we are measuring the sticks (maths) and sawing them safely (risk assessment skills) to create a 3d pyramid.

Ta da, our model!
