Building Playgrounds in Year 1

We have been looking at photographs of playgrounds in the UK and playgrounds in Africa. We looked at a playground in Kenya where there was no equipment for children to play with so we decided we would design a playground for them. First we went outside to look at our own adventure playground and we studied the joining techniques. We spotted welding and lots of nuts and bolts. 

Back in the classroom we practised joining techniques using cardboard tubes. We learned how to fringe the end of the tube to attach tubes to the base. We then worked in groups to build our designs.
