Pupils in Years 1 and 2 at Beech House enjoyed an unforgettable
experience with Architecture workshops. The cross-curricular
hands-on activity stretched the children's minds and taught them
the importance of teamwork, whilst including work from key subject
areas such as Science, Maths and Design Technology.
Working in pairs, Year 1 children built pyramids - or
tetrahedrons - from 6 sticks and 4 elastics. The simple
structures were then connected together to form larger structures,
culminating in a huge tetrahedron that the whole class could stand
Year 2 pupils, working individually, in small groups and
altogether, built sections of a bridge which slotted together to
form one large structure. Then they had to problem solve how
to make it stand!
