Constructing our stick towers outdoors allowed our year 3 design technology lesson to be more purposeful and memorable. Our towering nests were designed to protect the egg from predators. To satisfy the design brief, the egg had to be 30cm high and remain in place for thirty seconds without rolling off.
This week in year 3 we made full use of our lovely school grounds and took our literacy lesson outdoors. The class split into groups to investigate and report on some rather strange incidents. On Tuesday, during registration, Mr Johnson informed us of some burnt sticks and slime near the school car park. Later that morning, we had found large footprints and a huge, mysterious egg!
