Project 184: Buildings

We last explored the topic of buildings in Project 64: Buildings and Architecture, and decided to revisit the topic after discovering some printable models from the Avoncroft Museum

We started the week exploring different types of homes using some Twinkl resources and a Twinkl quiz, and some books about buildings and architecture. We looked at how architecture has changed in the UK during different historical periods (e.g., Tudor, Georgian, Victorian etc), and we also looked at how architecture differs in other countries based on the climate of the country. 

The children also did a creative writing activity from the Courtauld: If Buildings Could Talk. Sam and Sol wrote mission reports as though they had discovered a building on a new planet, and Monica wrote a diary entry from the perspective of a princess in a castle. 

Next project: Bronze Age
