Reception Build Boats

Reception have been building boats.

Investigating different materials, we explored what was more or less effective to use when building a boat.

Working in small groups, they had to share a limited supply of scissors, glue, string, tape and other items, ensuring everyone worked as part of their team.

Testing the boats in a water tray, some of them sank, others could float and some even fell apart. Everyone had great answers to ‘how?’ and 'why?' questions. It was a great way to evaluate materials and compare their effectiveness.

Great team work reception.
