Scavengers and Settlers - Team building day

On Thursday 15th January, year 3 and 4 took part in a team building day.  This was part of their new topic 'Scavengers and Settlers'.

Throughout the morning, the children took part in three different activities:

  1. The cup tower challenge
  2. Swamp challenge
  3. Newspaper tower challenge.

All three of these activities needed co-operation, perseverance, team work and good communication.

The morning was a huge success, with children wanting to continue the activities during their lunch hour.

In the afternoon, we were inspired by a well known scavenger,'Stig' from Stig of the Dump.  The hall was turned into a huge 'dump' with card, plastic, tubing, bottles and fabric and the children used these to create their masterpieces. 

A thoroughly enjoyable day had by all.
