First was our recycling workshop in our topic of Marvellous Machines where parents and children shared in activities to make and create robots from recycled materials. The children worked in groups with a selection of different materials and then worked through the morning to create some fabulous robots.
Our second workshop, in our topic ‘It’s our planet’ was an art workshop using different recycled materials. Children selected wood, plastic, metal and found natural materials to create sculptures.
The themes were given for each group and the children worked hard using drills, screwdrivers, hammers and nuts and bolts to create wonderful art pieces. The children learned the importance of reusing materials, how materials are made and where they come from.
Our workshop was made possible with the support of outside artist Mr Pete Margerum . I’m sure that you will agree the final results are quite amazing and we look forward to working with him again.
