FS2 Spin Drums

What a windy week! This week our learning took us outside where we observed the trees blowing and heard the leaves rustling. We marched up to the Horse Chestnut Tree, and what gems did we find? Conkers…. and so many of them! We gathered them up and brought them back to our classroom, pockets bulging. Then we learnt how to use the hand drill to make holes in them. Next we threaded them onto string and attached them to a cardboard disk. We used the glue gun to attach a wooden handle and ta-da, spin drums were made! So much resilience and satisfaction was shown by the children with the hand drill – well done!
