Year One and Year Two children are enjoying participating in Construction Club! The children listened to a story, ‘The Train Ride’ by Judith Crebbin. They looked carefully at the illustrations and spotted a farm, a bridge, a busy town, and the sea!
Using Duplo, the children worked together to build an enormous train track – this required team work as the children developed strategies to join the track sections together.
Trains were soon zooming round the track, and the children shifted their focus onto creating stations and towns. A thirty second sand timer was utilised at the points to manage the flow of the trains, and a super town was created outside the station. The children were thrilled to note that their town looked just like the illustration in the book!
