Year 2 were excited to test their shipbuilding skills and see if their ships would sink or float. We ending the literacy unit with a class race to see which ship could sail the furthest. The children had great fun watching their ships sail away. They discovered that the best ships were the ones that had a sail on. It helped that it was a windy day.
Well done Year 2 for using DT skills to create unique ships based on Shackleton’s ship Endurance. They weren’t quite the same but all children managed to create ships that didn’t sink. Great work!
