Week 2: Different types of houses including our own home.
The children have really enjoyed their expedition learning this week. They have looked closely at their own houses and then the different types of houses they coulod see in the local community.
They looked at the different materials houses were made of and how each type of house looked different on the outisde. We noticed the bungalows in the community didnt have an upstairs. Presely in FS2 said “this meant they didn’t have stairs inside, which helped old people to move around more easily”.
In the classroom the children used all their new knowledge to build houses in the bricks, print bricks in the paint, build using “cement” in the water tray and create their own dream houses in the workshop.
