This week the children have been working together to construct different models using sticklebricks. They demonstrated great teamwork and collaboration whilst sharing their ideas and working together. Of course, the children’s imaginations were very creative and we constructed everything from a colourful road to a bear house, to a princess house and even a nice birthday cake!

Team Challenge

This week the children have been set a team challenge, to build a construction where everyone agrees on a plan. Once the plan has been agreed the children must work cooperatively with lots of communication and problem solving.

At first is was quite difficult as the children tried to agree on one plan ! Then came the challenge of working together and the differing of opinions. There were some construction problems and several times the building collapsed. In the true Holme Grange spirit they didn’t give up and the challenge was met!
