Reception's Building & Construction Day

 

On Wednesday 20th January, our Reception children had a great day out at one of our local high schools Westleigh High. They went on a building and construction day and whilst there they got the opportunity to take part in lots of different activities. Some of these included investigating materials used to build and construct with, constructing their own brick walls out of real bricks and mortar and creating their very own houses out of wood. As you can see from the pictures they had great fun, but more importantly it helped to contribute towards many of the Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design development matters statements that the children have to fulfil.
