At Dame Bradbury we have experimented with model making as a learning and recording strategy – a method that is fully accessible to all children.
For example, Year 4 children made model skeletons at home. They had to research and choose their skeleton, materials and labelling method. The models were displayed at school and the children self assessed their work.
Year 5 children modelled the structure of the ear using plasticine. They used whiteboard pens directly onto the science tables to label their models.
