Snippets of the Week

Posted: 31st August 2021

Construction Crazy is Shell's new topic and this started with SHS exploring the story of The Three Little Pigs. The boys wrote about the pigs' houses and thought about the materials they would use to build their own houses. The investigations into materials continued with looking at Tower Bridge and the way that this had been built, encouraging the boys to design and build their own bridges using different construction methods. A wonderful week of building and investigation.
This week, Shell have been excited about their new topic, Construction Crazy.
SHP began with a link to The Three Little Pigs and thought about what the houses were made of, making a trap for the wolf, creating our own houses and other crafts.
We moved on and listened to a story called, The Tower Bridge Cat which has led on to some amazing bridge designs and construction using a variety of materials.
