Think You've Got  What  It Takes To Work For The Best Workshop Provider In The Country?  Then Get In Touch Today

Architecture Workshops are hands-on fun educational activities for all Key Stages and abilities. Designed to enhance the national curriculum and to communicate the art and experience of architecture, art, and design. The workshops help resource the school curriculum by providing pupils with insight into why and how things are the way they are.

 

In the workshop, the quest for understanding the world around us is a shared experience between workshop presenter 'animateur' and the pupils. Visualising, designing, creating, calculating and analysing are presented through practical activities. Pupils enjoy and learn about the real world through 'learning by doing', self teaching and communicating to others.

Key Stage One Workshops

Designed to stimulate imaginations and excite children and teachers alike, these workshops focus on simple ideas to great effect. Using numbers, counting, shapes and space pupil’s work together to build simple modular forms.

 

The ideas found in this workshop are developed throughout our repertoire of workshops, from KS 1 & 2 right up to KS 3,4 & 5. 

 

Workshops need to take place in the school dining hall, gym or sports hall.  All the structure are dismantled as part of the workshop experience, so we are able to be out of dining halls in time for the catering staff to put out tables, which if necessary we will assist with.

 

Photographs are permitted of the workshops, so please ensure batteries in your cameras are fully charged.

 

Video recording of the workshops is prohibited, as the processes of the workshops are covered by our copyright.



Tetra

1hr for Yr 1 / 1&2hrs for Yr 2

Year 1 & 2; max 30 pupils

Key elements; DT, listening, cooperation and teamwork, problem solving, 2d &3d shapes.

The workshop starts with pupils watching the animateur build a pyramid using simple materials and techniques. They engage the children by interaction, getting them to assist in the building process.

Working in a pairs or small groups, pupils replicate the pyramid making, using  simple 2d and 3d shapes to build triangular based pyramids (terahedron).

Huge Tetrahedron with Year 1 pupils

These simple modular forms are connected together in small groups, to form larger structures, which in turn are connected together, culminating is one huge tetrahedron 4m high that the whole class can get inside.





Yr 2; Mega Tetrahedron (requires a 2hr workshop)

When working with Year 2 pupils we can extend the workshop to 2hrs and weather permitting build a 7m tall Tetrahedron outside, the like of which you will have never seen before, let alone the children.

The Birdhouse / Octas

1hr for Yrs 1 & 2

Year 1 & 2; max 30 pupils

Key elements; reading, listening, cooperation and teamwork, 2d &3d shapes.hapes.

Making The First Triangle

Reading from the Birdhouse storybook, with the animateur, the children answer questions about the bird in the story.  The children observe and describe the shapes, and number of them, in the book which they will be using to build with afterwards. 


Fixing Triangles Together

 Then working together they make a series of triangles which are the fixed together to build structures to make different types of dwelling, which the children identify.

The finale of the workshop is putting as many structures together to make a birdhouse tower, as high as possible. The children delight in seeing their work reaching the ceiling of their school hall.........and seeing it topple over in order that they can dismantle it.
