Build, Construct and Create in Reception

In class RHH they have been thinking about how to ‘build, construct and create’. This has led them to many different activities, experiences and amazing discoveries in their learning. Here are just a few photos of them.

They looked at the work of Paul Klee and ‘built’ tower pictures with oil pastels and brusho ink. This also linked to their key text ‘Tower to the Sun’, set in a future where pollution meant that the sun and blue sky could no longer be seen. They made tool belts in the style of Bob and Wendy the builders and created clay towers from 2D rectangles turning them into 3D cylinders. They have also been practising using real tools and it has taken a lot of concentration, determination and ‘stickability’ to screw the screws into the wood; knock in nails safely with the hammer; sand wood and link nuts and bolts together.

They will be continuing to think about this topic after half term, so please pop down and talk to them about it. What else can they ‘build, construct and create’?
