The pictures can tell the story:
Year Six were practicing cutting timber joints on 3rd December, to copy how the roof supports are fitted together:
|Four timbers complete with two lap joints each|
On December 10th they made a pop-up roof with hand-held gutters to show how to collect and store rainwater from a roof. It worked!
|The pop-up roof takes shape|
|No problem! From watering can to storage without any spills|
On both days, we explored how teamworking makes a better and stronger construction.
