This afternoon, some of Reception class have been exploring the story of 'The wise and foolish builders'. The children worked together to build two houses, one on the sand and one on solid ground. Once they had finished building I told the children that we were going to pour lots of water on top to mimic the storm in our bible story. They were very excited about this! But first we made our predictions on what we thought would happen to each house. They all thought the house on solid ground would be the strongest and the house on the sand would fall! So we put their predictions to the test! And sure enough the house on the sand did fall down, it wasn't strong at all. Meanwhile the house on solid ground didn't budge!
