On Tuesday (11th December) we will be building houses for the 3 Little Pigs as part of our DT and Science unit on Materials. The children have designed their house and have thought of the materials they will need to build it.
We have thought about the benefits of using strong materials like cardboard instead of weak materials like paper and also thought about how to make our house waterproof.
After a day of making on Tuesday, we will be testing how strong and waterproof our houses are.
The children will need to provide their own resources so if you can help them to collect materials over the weekend it would be much appreciated. Be as creative as you like but we have spoken about materials including: cardboard, kitchen roll / toilet roll tubes, clingfilm, tin foil, plastic bags, elastic bands, etc. Please don’t feel like you need to buy anything especially, just use what you can find around the home.
I will provide all sellotape and glue required on the day.
