Designing and Building

In the discovery room over the last couple of weeks the children have been creative in the construction area where they have been designing and building their own models and then selecting and using different sized blocks to build them.

                            H decided to use the large blocks in the construction area to build her very own ”throne” as she was playing ”Kings and Queens and Princesses”

 

                                A and L used their problem solving skills to build their very own see saw!

                                 

R and I took their time and selected different shaped blocks to create their own castle!

This interest from the children has inspired language and discussions about shape and size and the children have been exploring mathematical language such as ”how big” and ”how small”.
