Year 3 Den Making

Year three had a great time with a local artist making sculptures. In the morning they investigated 3D shapes and used their knowledge to try to make a structure strong enough to hold a large weight.  In the afternoon all the children worked outside in groups to create structures using bamboo poles and cable ties. The children had to work as a team to make a successful structure helping each other hold the poles whilst others fastened them in place.
It was very windy which made it even more difficult to make a structure that would stay up but the children showed great determination and did not give up. The children had a great time and it was lovely to see them having so much fun whilst learning about team work and construction.
