STEM Week at Hotwells - Our Recycling City!

Class 1 partnered up with Class 3 today to work on their technology and engineering skills. They were visited by professionals from Peter Brett Associates who work on engineering, economic and urban planning projects. They told us all about how they use recycling for building materials. They use old plastic bottles filled with recycling which make very strong bricks (known as eco-bricks). They also showed the children how they can layer old newspapers and even used nappies (!) to create materials similar to planks of wood. The children thought about what every 'city' needs. They then created their own pictures of a perfect city. Finally they worked in their mixed age groups to create these cities using recycled materials. They all listened very well and worked efficiently with their Class 3 partners. Well done Class 1! 

Forest School at Hotwells

Class One enjoyed a wild and windy school-based Forest school session. They loved taking part in the RSPB's Big Bird Watch - identifying many different types - and bug befriending. After a snack and some fruit tea, they were back outdoors again to make magic potions. The aim was to create interesting smells; they certainly achieved this! Enjoy these photos of the morning.

We love to hear what you are enjoying in Class 1. Why not leave a comment here?
