Tuesday 23rd February 2016- Shelter Making!

We have come back to school after half term, excited to continue our learning all about volcanoes! We decided to think about what happens to the people who live near to volcanoes after an eruption and saw some devastating pictures where houses had been destroyed. We thought about what humans need to survive and one key thing that we said was shelter.

We then got into groups and designed a shelter for these people! We had to think about the materials that we used because the shelter needed to be strong, durable, waterproof and wind resistant! 

We thought carefully about our ideas and how we should construct our shelters.

Even the governors got involved!

Here we are testing if our shelters were wind resistant...

...and if they were waterproof!

We had a fantastic afternoon and created some amazing shelters!
