Problem solving week in 2 Blue

2 Blue have really enjoyed solving lots of different problems this week.  We shared the story of The Gingerbread Man, talked about the problems he encountered and discussed how he could have tackled them differently. As well as designing a bridge for him to cross, we also collected materials to make him a shelter and built a fire on which to cook him!!  We solved Maths problems, made model islands and completed team challenges.  A very busy and enjoyable week!

  1. We were using our body to make letters.
    We read about the gingerbread man and we tried to make a good bridge to get the gingerbread man over the river.
