Year 1 are taking part in an exciting Lego mission! Each week pupils will visit Goldthorpe library where they will embark on a different Lego challenge.
Keep visiting this page to see what our Year 1 Lego champions are up to each week.
This week we started with the six brick challenge again but this time we were even more imaginative! You could tell that everyone had been practising with their six bricks at home!
Our mission this week was set by the characters in a comic strip, they asked us to think about the objects we may see in space. Then, in our teams, we used our creativity and imagination to build rockets, space stations, moon buggies and much, much more. Finally, we put our models together on the moon mats to make a wonderful space display. We talked about how our models were the same/different and explained the function of each object.
We have really started to grow in confidence and this was reflected in our creativity and in the vocabulary we are now using. But most importantly we had lots of fun again!
Our first mission was called 'What can we Build?'
We did the six brick challenge by building something with our 6 bricks then combined this with somebody else's to create something even more amazing. We have all taken home a pack containing six bricks so that we can do the six brick challenge at home too.
We then studied some pictures of space, the solar system, Earth and the Moon. We shared the information we already know about space then we explored what it would be like to live on the Moon and thought about the ways in which it would be different to living on Earth.
Inspired by the pictures and discussions, we were allowed to use all of the Lego available to us to build anything we wanted. We discovered that some Lego pieces have functions that make them spin, roll and swing. There are even gears that turn!
Look at some of the amazing models we created ...….
