Real hands-on engagement.
There is nothing like getting stuck in to construction work and the application of numeracy skills (amongst others) to get a real appreciation of what building work is all about. Children (KS1) have been applying a wide range of knowledge and skills thorough this project whilst working with me over the last year to explore ideas for their school grounds. They have discussed options, brought inspiration from visits, made models, measured the space and experimented at real scale to plan a natural creative play area, with adventure. Now they are actually building it! (with help from the experts at Touchwood) "It's harder work than  you think!" (quote from a girl working on stripping bark from a chestnut pole)
