House Building

This afternoon the children had great fun working together in the construction area using the building blocks to build their house. They  were discussing with each other which shapes and sizes of blocks would be best to build their house. The children were developing their social and communication skills using problem solving, enquiry based learning as well as working as part of a team.

“Let’s use the big  building blocks”

“We need to use our hammers to make sure it doesn’t fall down”

We had such great fun all working together as a team to build our house, the boys decided to expand it and turn it into a castle.

“It’s so big”

Creative Builders

Today the children had fun working together to build a bridge that would get them across the “river” to safety using the building blocks. The children chose different sized blocks and discussed with one another what shapes and sizes would be best to build their bridge. This displayed brillant problem solving skills as well as working as part of a team using their creative minds.

The children used their balancing skills while crossing over the bridge, this supported the development of their co ordination and gross motor skills.

The children had such great fun building the bridge they then decided to change it into a train track.
