Welcome to the Building Club!
The children who request a place come to the club for a term due to the high demand for places. The school will inform parents of which term it is. The club is run by Mrs Jenny May and Mrs Vanessa DeBoer in the year 6 classrooms.
The club runs on a Tuesday after school until 4:15pm.
The challenges given will involve different construction materials - we use Lego, Knex, Marble runs, other construction resources and STEM materials such as straws. The children are given the chance to use their imaginations and create models on a given theme, for example creating an animal with 6 legs. Often they are able to work together and the models are always kept for a week on the 6JM windowsill so parents and carers can come and look at their child's construction.
Last year, the imagination and skills on show were very impressive and we look forward to seeing some more super constructions this year
This year the club is as follows:
Term 1 - Years 3/4 Group 1
Term 2 - Years 5/6
Term 3 - Years 3/4 Group 2
Have a look at the photos below show-casing some of the builds this year.
