Creation Station takes off!
As part of our daily programme we have had a making table or 'Creation Station' set up in the classroom. Here the children are given the opportunity to work independently on a task of their choosing. Provided at the station is paper, card, string, cellotape, staples, scissors, rulers, pencils, glue, ice block sticks, match sticks etc- along with some instructions for things they could make. The children have to read and follow the instructions, measure, problem solve, modify, and in many cases work alongside someone else to achieve their goal. It has proved to be a wonderful opportunity for them to work on fine motor skills as well with all the cutting and drawing involved.
Alongside our class shop and kitchen, our Creation Station has proved to be a very popular space for lots of learning. Here's just a few of the things that have been made.
