Engineers!23 September 2019 Written by Nagie, Swallow
Year 4 were working really well in teams to design and build a bridge. Their challenge was to only use 2 materials: Newspaper and cellotape!
They made some impressive model bridges - Take a look at us working collaboratively below and pop into our classrooms to see what they look like...
Making cars in the Play Pod08 September 2016 Written by Maria Skinner
This afternoon Year 4 Swift has been practising their team building skills in the Play Pod.
The Play Pod is a fantastic resource we have here at Hannah More that the children can use during their lunch time to build things and be creative with. The children worked as a team to make cars out of the amazing materials and resources that we have in our fantastic Play Pod in the playground which the children can use during lunchtimes.
Their task was to work together as a team to build a car. They were told that the winning team would be the one that showed the best team work skills. They began by huddling in their teams (as the photos show) to discuss their plan and what resources they might want to use from the Play Pod before they began to build.
Both teams worked collaboratively and shared ideas, respecting what each other brought to the team and the building process. They both came up with very unique cars, all with enough seats for each member of the team and were very excited to get in and take it for a spin. It was great to see that both cars came with seatbelts fitted into every seat!
Take a look at the photos to see what amazing creations they came up with!
