What an end to our topic we have had this week!! The children have completed the models of their new homes for Persimmon. The children had to use their knowledge of maths by measuring 12 pieces of wood accurately to make a cube. They then used triangles of card to strengthen the wood at a meeting point. We discussed how Persimmon would also do this when building foundations and walls in homes.
Their art skills were then required to design a roof and the front of their houses in order to include different features of buildings that we have been looking at throughout history. Some children used columns and balconies in their features and some had lots of detail to their roofs.
We were very lucky to have prizes donated by Persimmon for the best model in each Year 3 class and the results were given on Thursday 11th April.
In 3W the winners were, Charlie, Layla and Bella. In 3J, Isla, Brooke and Mylie and in 3S Freddie, Aaliyah and Kingsley. Congratulations to all 3 groups.
