Buildings

We have been learning about buildings. We began by bringing in a photograph of our own home and telling our friends why it is special. We looked at the features of houses and used our observations to paint the houses we liked. In our maths work we studied the shapes used in houses and other buildings.

We were visited by Mr Clough our site supervisor. He showed us some of the tools and equipment he uses when he is building. We learnt lots of new words and found out how different tools are used. This will help us to use our roleplay area! Mr Clough also showed us some of the clothing and accessories he needs to stay safe when he is on a building site.

We found out about lots of different materials used by builders. We discussed which materials were good and which were not. We decided that we would not like a house made of straw or windows made from sticks!

We used lots of resources from the modelling station to make 3D models of the homes we had designed.

Making Models in the construction area.

Measuring lots of items around the classroom, including one another !   

We went to visit St Joseph's Church to look around the outside and inside of our church building. Father showed us lots of interesting things including pews, stained glass windows, an altar and a pulpit. Tell a member of your family about our church building.

On our journey we saw lots of exciting things. We stopped at the local mosque and took lots of photographs to help us look at the similarities and differences beteen the church building and the mosque. What similarities and differences can you see?

Look at the interesting things that we saw on our journey. Use the photographs to tell someone in your family about our visit to church.
