Reception and Year 1 have been busy exploring properties of materials and discovering the different states of matter (solid, liquid, gas) in order to create different structures. They have explored this in art, STEAM, music, and MFL. After reading the Three Little Pigs, they worked in teams to create three different houses using leaves, sticks, and blocks. They were persistent, problem-solvers, discussed, and negotiated ideas, and made connections between previous activities and book readings to their current activities. Then their structures were tested for strength by the BIG BAD WOLF (aka as the electric fan!). Much to the amazement of all, all three houses stood firm and strong!
