Reception and year 4 – DT structures

We had the opportunity to work with year 4 to build a structure, a den for us to be precise!

Year 4 helped us by giving us directions, they tried to talk us through the process of the building from the viewpoint of their job role, these were project manager, supplier, builder, and planner.

We had SUCH fun, children in both year groups learnt a lot! There was a lot of trial and error, and we discussed how much we can learn from making mistakes! We were resilient, and continued building despite difficulties. I would like to say a huge well done and thank you to the year 4 children, they were kind, patient and Reception class have requested more opportunities to work with year 4, so watch this space!
