Brave Young Makers: Year Three Pupils at Ridgefield Primary Transform Materials into Birds and Insects
This workshop presented year three pupils at Ridgefield Primary School with real design and making challenges as they worked to a brief to ‘create birds and insects for their school tree’.
The tree was a naked steel structure, badly in need of adorning and standing in the school’s ‘nature garden’ next to a pond, nest boxes and meadow flowers all beautifully maintained by the pupils under the stewardship of Mr. Pillin, the school’s site manager.
The challenge for the year three pupils was to produce finished sculptural pieces, which would be strong enough to withstand wind and rain, in a day. Sculptures would be made by transforming materials from a near by Bits and Bobs scrap store.
