Designing and Creating
This week in Reception we have been looking at how to plan, design and create. Firstly we have thought a lot about our playground and how we can make this area a 'Minibeast Friendly Zone'. We used a planning sheet to show what changes we would make to the area. Then we learnt how to design and create models in the creative workshop and construction areas. By designing, planning and then creating, we are able to use a range of thinking skills, beginning with recalling and applying (lower-order thinking) and then moving onto analysing, evaluating and creating (Higher order thinking skills). We are extremely proud of our new skills.
