Woodwork 2019

Fifth class parents and children recently completed a five week workshop focused on woodwork with their Community Education tutor Brian Mitchell. The programme involved fourteen parents and children. The project utilised cross-curricular subject areas with a strong emphasis on numeracy. Children and parents were measuring, constructing and estimating during the design of their bird boxes. The project also linked in with the Biodiversity initiative currently running in the school. In addition to the bird boxes, we constructed window boxes which will lead to the next phase of the project, planting and cultivating. There were some fantastically creative and artistic designs. There was great collaboration during the project and children and parents thoroughly enjoyed and benefitted from the experience. We cannot wait for phase two to begin.
