Designed to stimulate imaginations and excite children and teachers alike, these workshops focus on simple ideas to great effect. Using numbers, counting, shapes and space pupil’s work together to build simple modular forms. The ideas found in this workshop are developed throughout our repertoire of workshops, from KS 1 & 2 right up to KS 3,4 & 5.
Why are Architecture Workshops a great choice for bringing fun workshops into your school?
The workshop starts with pupils watching the animateur build a pyramid using simple materials and techniques. They engage the children by interaction, getting them to assist in the building process.
Key elements; DT, listening, cooperation and teamwork, problem solving, 2d &3d shapes.
Working in a pairs or small groups, pupils replicate the pyramid making, using simple 2d and 3d shapes to build triangular based pyramids (terahedron). These simple modular forms are connected together in small groups, to form larger structures, which in turn are connected together, culminating is one huge tetrahedron 4m high that the whole class can get inside.
