Holly Class investigate houses in D&T

Holly class have been investigating houses in their D&T lessons. Using the 3 Little Pigs as inspiration, the children built houses made of straw, sticks and bricks. These houses were teasted for strength against the might of the Big Bad Wolf ( the classroom fan!)

The children had to work in groups to design and build the houses. The only criteria they were given was that the house must have 4 walls and a roof.

The children discovered the strongest houses were made from bricks-just like in the story.
