This afternoon, we have designed a shelter for our desert island. We had to think about the structure of our shelter for it to be able to protect us from predators and all weather conditions. We also thought about the colour of our shelter and decided it would be a good idea to colour it with leaves so that it is camouflaged.
Today we faced the challenge of creating a house that is protected from flooding. We were given lots of materials to choose from and had to read their properties carefully to help us decide which one to choose.
Once we had our materials chosen we had to work out prices and check our budget. What was your budget and what materials did you choose?
Today we have learnt about how we can save our planet. We have created an information text, identifying ways we can help save our planet. For example: recycling, cutting down on pollution and growing more fruit and vegetables in the UK so that it is not shipped from overseas.
We created bird feeders out of recycled plastic bottles.
This week our focus is about building a theme park. Today we used square paper to design a floor plan of how we would like our theme park to look. Each ride had a different surface area so we had to think carefully about where to locate each ride or attraction.
What rides have you got in your theme park? Share your ideas with us.
