We will also think about how when we reuse materials we are helping to reduce the amount of rubbish we make. We want to help look after our environment.
To start the term we visited the Lego Education Centre at the Docklands to think about design. First we had to design a chair strong enough to hold Papa Bear (Mrs Kennedy) from the story of Golidlocks and the Three Bears. We learnt that we had to overlap the lego bricks to make the chair strong.
Then we had to build a chair for Baby Bear (one that wouldn't break!). We had to work in teams to make one chair per group.
Here are some photos of our chairs.

We also talked about what we discovered!
Do you reuse materials to reduce rubbish?
What do you reuse and how?
