The launch of the Three Little Pigs!

This afternoon, Year 1 were given the task of building a house as a group that needed to withstand ‘the huff and the puff’ of a hairdryer! Engaging their team ant skills, they worked together to select from a variety of materials to create their own free standing houses. They used straws, paper, card, lollipop sticks, pipe-cleaners, masking tape and glue, to build some very imaginative houses. The final test was to see if they would stand up against the hairdryer! Most of the houses proved to be very sturdy and survived the test.

Next week we will be learning the story of the Three Little Pigs through T4W, discovering which of the pigs houses managed to survive against the wolf’s huffing and puffing.

  1. Year 1, you all looked very focused in building your sturdy houses, and I was proud to see you all using your cutting and sticking skills as well as imaginations in your creations. I wonder if your houses would withstand the wolf’s huff and puff?
    I look forward to hearing your retelling of the ‘The Three Little Pigs’.
