STEM - KAPLA Clubs Visit - 15.02.23 - 16.01.23

Year groups 3, 4 and 5 were visited by KAPLA Clubs, the children had a fantastic opportunity to build on a huge scale using Kapla blocks. Starting with class 3S, the children began building and had 1 hour to construct boats, an octopus and towers. The next classes then came in one by one and continued to build and add to the project, resulting in a 'mini town' with 2 bridges, 2 palaces, 2 giraffes and much more! The children listened carefully to Jennifer's instructions and worked together to create their structures. This developed their skills in communication, engineering, teamwork, perseverance and mathematics. Parents were invited to come along and help during the workshop and then at the end of the workshop, our project was showcased to the whole school and families and eventually demolished!
