For our next Learning Experience, Silver Birch Trees will be designing and creating a bug hotel. We will start by analysing existing products so we can understand what consumers we want too appeal to. We will be developing our knowledge and understanding of the design process so we have a clear purpose of why and how our product will work. Silver Birch Trees will also develop skills by learning how to use tools accurately and confidently to create our final product. Throughout, we will be evaluating our ideas to ensure we improve our design continuously.
To start this Learning Experience, the children will enjoy an Egyptian workshop. They will learn about the chronology of the Ancient Egyptian timeline, discover artefacts, learn and play a game, write hieroglyphics and witness the mummification process! During lessons, they will learn about the different aspects of an Egyptian life such as: religion, hierarchy, gods and goddesses and the afterlife. They will also discover why the River Nile was so important to the Egyptians. We will end the experience by visiting Maidstone Museum to experience a hands on workshop!
