Learning Intention: To construct a model igloo

This afternoon Beech class children tried their hands at being architects from the tundra and constructed their own model igloos. We used papier-mâché to create a stable base for the igloo upon a paper plate. Next, we used PVA glue to carefully build the ‘snow’ bricks using marshmallows – the best technique was to build in rows for a uniform look that left little gaps. Finally, the children used cotton wool to create a snowy texture for the igloo to stand on which created a realistic look of the Inuit home stood in the arctic tundra.

  • Select and use a wider range of tools and equipment to perform practical tasks.
  • Use a wider range of materials according to their functional properties and aesthetic qualities.
  • Understand how to strengthen and reinforce more complex structures
To start off our new topic, Beech Class are helping support some of the coldest places on earth by adopting a polar bear!
