Years 1 & 2 design and make their own rafts

Posted: 17th May 2017 | Category: Year 1, Year 2

As part of our Woodland explorers the children have designed and made their own rafts.
They went down to the woods and came back with an abundance of twigs in all shapes and sizes.  Having looked at some pictures and video clips of different types of rafts, the children then created their own designs, thinking about which materials they might  need to use.
It was then time to build the rafts and the classroom was awash with masking tape twigs, glue and sticky hands. After a few false starts and a couple of disasters the children showed great perseverance and teamwork and the rafts are now ready to set sail. Watch this space!
