The Big Build 

 In this unit, pupils will be exploring how we use materials to change the world around us.

People build big, high, wide and strong. They build houses, bridges, roads and railways, airports for aeroplanes and harbours for ships.

Children will learn how the world looks from above and how we represent our natural world in maps, beginning to create their own maps of places that matter to them. They will experience building shelters and keeping safe through the story of The Three Little Pigs. We learn the story of the Three Little Pigs exploring its characters and themes.

They will investigate what materials are used for constructing modern buildings and why different materials are chosen.
