Beat the Flood
Year 5 took part in a cross-curricular team based activity called “Beat the flood”.
The idea of the task was for children to work together and design and build a model flood- proof house. Not only did this cover a number of curriculum subjects, it also provided the children the opportunity to develop key life skills such as teamwork, co-operation and time management.
The children were very excited about this project and were keen to do well. As the children were designing and building their structures, we all couldn’t wait to see the end results and most importantly test them out in flood conditions (debris- for realistic purposes- included)!
