Building Blocks KS1

In these workshops pupils have the chance to look at different elements of a building and understand them through a variety of hands-on activities. One session is inside, the other outside and they are designed to complement each other but can also be undertaken independently.

Building blocks: indoors

Duration: 45 minutes

Maximum numbers: 15 children

After a quick introduction the group is divided into little teams to sit around the action stations (as many of you will know from the previous version of this workshop). Each child will have the chance to do each hands-on activity, which is designed to enable a better understanding of the elements of how homes were built in the past.

Building blocks: outside

Duration: 45 minutes

Maximum numbers: 15 children

Based around the Museum market square the group will have 3 bags of activities where they identify and find the relevant item in the built environment around them. Our leader will prompt and introduce further information as the group work as house detectives!
