Tick off your science objectives for working scientifically and materials & their properties. Our practical hands-on approach to learning outdoors provides an inclusive learning style that creates a memorable experience for all involved.
The children will learn that this was the method used to build houses in 1666 and so this is how Thomas Farriner’s bakery was actually made. As a class they will learn how to create a strong wattle structure using sticks and then have some fantastic muddy fun adding the daub mixture to complete their wall.
Using building Thomas Farriner a new improved bakery as motive, we will move on to investigating materials. In small groups, the children will work scientifically to evaluate the suitability of different building materials. Using their findings the children will work together to create a model bakery that has to be strong, windproof and waterproof. They will evaluate their structures as they’re built and improve them by reflecting on the results of our materials investigation.
The workshop lasts 2 hours and is available to book 10am-12pm & 1pm – 3pm.
A single workshop classes as a half day and can be booked either in the morning or afternoon. Two workshops classes as a full day.
