Spring 2

 

This half term we have been learning about Buildings. We have read the story of The Three Little Pigs and looked at different materials to build houses. We have also learnt about the different types of houses- detached, semi-detached, terraced, flats and bungalow. Some of the children have been on a village walk to find the different types of houses that we have been learning about.

We started our topic by reading the story of The Three Little Pigs. We created a small world tray to help us retell the story in our own words. The children also took part in an experiment where they had to build a house for the little pigs. We received a letter from mummy pig asking us to build a safe and strong house for her little pigs. The children were very excited by this and were very busy all day building houses using different materials- lego and bricks. Miss Leeman then pretended to be The Big Bad Wolf and tested the models to see how strong they were. Miss Leeman tried to blow the houses down and then tested to see how strong they were by trying to blow they down using her hair dryer! We had lots of fun!
