There has been a lot of construction work happening around Scoil Mhuire. We decided to get in on the action and have our own building site in room 4!
Our first step was to go and visit the real builders and get some practical advice:
Then we set up our own building site in our classroom:
We used lots of different tools to build! Ask your child to name one of those tools, they were very good at learning the names.
We also used big building blocks called Jaggo blocks. The blocks are a fantastic resource newly purchased by the school. The children absolutely love building and using their imaginations to create wonderful designs.
Now we have to go and build some houses for three scared little pigs .... we think we are up for the challenge!
