Phase 1 of EY2’s building project is now complete. Throughout the project, children have looked at buildings and their uses, construction methods and materials, quality and design, to name but a few.
We have looked at size and capacity through mathematics by measuring the heights of buildings and modelling buildings big enough to suit a particular purpose. The Art and design teacher has helped us represent what we see and imagine on paper and in a three-dimensional form whilst working with our peers to build and explore.
English and Chinese language sessions have helped us understand new concepts and ideas associated with buildings and express our thoughts and emotions. We understand the world by looking at the different types of home architectures we can find. The places we are living in are only a tiny representation. In the next step, we will further deepen children’s understanding in this field through resources such as world maps and Hangzhou city maps.
