Technology – Design a Bed for a Bear
Linking in with our learning on Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Class 1 enjoyed a morning of design and technology where they each designed and made a bed to fit their own bear.
They used lots of different skills such as measuring, cutting, joining materials in different ways and using their creativity to make the bed just how they wanted it.
It was lovely to observe the children each having their own ideas and talking them through, accessing the resources that they needed independently and persisting with their plan even if it didn’t seem to be going quite as they wanted or expected. The children demonstrated high levels of concentration and they each showed great satisfaction and pride when they had completed their bed.
I was also really impressed with the way Class 1 supported and cooperated with one another throughout this challenge.
