Our New Big Idea... 'BUILD IT UP'

Build it up

In the 'Build It Up' project, your child will explore structures in the world around them. They will learn about materials and their properties and will have the chance to work independently and in groups to design and make marvellous structures. We will also be looking at animals and how they are amazing architects building their own homes.

Supporting your child at home

  • Take a walk in the local area. Look at and talk about the buildings and other structures you see.
  • Talk about the materials from which their house is made, such as brick, stone or wood.
  • Take a large cardboard box and see what you can create together.
  • Share and discuss our big idea's poster below (see clearer image with PDF attached below).
