Today the children have been very busy in the Construction area.
They used their team working skills to discuss and create a plan to build a new bridge and roads.
They spoke about the different shapes and sizes of the blocks and how they would join together so that the road didn’t have ‘bumps’ on it .
“You need big muscles to be able to carry the big blocks”
“This block is wider than that one”
“We can make a ramp so the cars can go up and down, the car can’t jump up”
They added in ‘funny shaped blocks’ to create roundabouts for the cars to go round.
“This big one can be the start of the bridge and then we’ll add 4 bigger ones it will be so tall”
The children used their problem solving skills as they worked together to make the roads and bridge safe for the cars to drive on. They carried out a test run and a final check, then the bridge was complete.
