Barlow Class travel to Mars!


3 February 2015

Through dance, music and D.T., Barlow Class (Year 2) has been exploring the universe! Gustav Holst’s Mars from The Planet Suite has been our main stimulus. You can listen to it here:

This morning, the children were given a modest pile of plastic, rubber and wood and were asked to create a vehicle capable of exploring the planet Mars.

The children used imagination, conversation, observation and trial and error to solve various problems presented by the resources. Some of the solutions they came up with were ingenious! Well done, Barlow Class!
