D .T. in Early Years- Autumn 1

-First we discovered the 'crime scene' and looked for clues. We recorded our evidence using cameras, microphones and note pads!!

-We thought we'd found some animal prints so we  decided to dust for prints and compare these to different animal prints.

-We compared notes and decided it was a small animal so began to build some traps.

- Reception children built a large trap using green paint and leaves from the environment to camouflage it. The children tested the traps to make sure they were 'fit for purpose.'

- Year 1 built smaller traps. They learnt how to join the frame using glue and a butt joints. They also applied maths skills by measuring the net and card for the sides of the trap.  Children all tested their trap and evaluated how well they worked.
