Genius Hour – Year 4

This Term, the Year 4 students have been learning about famous landmarks all around the world. They started the term by researching their favourite three landmarks with a partner. They then had to pick their favourite of the three landmarks to BUILD and bring to life as a design and technology project. They had a few weeks to design their plan and collaborate with each other what sort of materials they will need to make a successful model. This week, they finally had their moment to build their landmarks. In 4OB we saw a model of the Eiffel Tower, London Eye, Pyramids of Giza, the Louvre, Palace Versailles, the Empire State Building, Temple of Bacchus, Christ the Redeemer, Big Ben, the Taj Mahal and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Students have learnt more about the history of the world, practised their teamwork and collaborative skills, extended their creativity and problem solving skills… but they also had FUN!
