Our STEM area is as popular as ever, so we would like to renew our request for supplies of clean recycling. Thank you for all the donations so far, but please keep it coming
Why do we need them ?
‘Junk’ modelling helps to develop
children’s imagination and creative abilities while challenging
them to explore, investigate and problem solve as they
bring their plans and ideas to life.
Children can work on their own or co-operate with
others, learning to negotiate and share ideas. When
they create something new it can give their confidence
and self-esteem a big boost. They can also consider
how their plans have worked out as they think about
what they might have done differently or how they might
improve their model, but remember, it is the process of
creating that is important rather than the end product.
