Architecture Workshops: STEM workshops For EYFS
My First Structure; Nursery & Reception
Key elements; listening, cooperation and teamwork, 2d &3d shapes
30 minutes with 8 Nursery pupils 45 minutes with 16 Reception pupils
Designed to stimulate imaginations and excite children and teachers alike, the workshop focus is on simple ideas to great effect. Using numbers, counting, shapes and space pupil’s work together to build simple modular forms.
The ideas found in this workshop are developed throughout our repetoire of workshops, from KS 1 & 2 right up to KS 3,4 & 5.
Developing Their Fine Motor Skills, pupils work in pairs to build large scale structures (Pyramids) that are put together to make larger pyramids, so demonstrating the the use of modular form. Throughout the workshop, pupils identify 2d and 3d shapes, count and interact with the spaces they are creating, thus developing their Gross Motor Skills.To book this activity, please contact:
