Year 5 Shelter Building

22nd May 2018
Year 5 linked the shelter building to their English work on 'The Hobbit', where the design brief was to build a shelter for Bilbo Baggins. The children researched different types of shelters, made prototypes of the frames using art straws and built the shelters using wooden canes, plastic sheeting, masking tape, sellotape and cable ties. They evaluated their final products and identified what went well and how they could be improved. They look great!
