This half term, we have been learning all about boats and we worked together to create them. First we worked together to design our boats and labelled them with all of the correct words. We have learnt that the steering wheel on a boat is called a helm. We know that boats have a mastsailsstern and some boats have a crow’s nest.

We used a technique called critique to help us. When we use critique, we can offer our opinions and advice to others in the class. We have to make sure that we follow 3 important rules. If we didn’t, we might end up hurting someone’s feelings about their work. These are:

  1. Be kind

  2. Be helpful

  3. Be specific

We used different techniques to help us to make sure that things were stuck on tight. We remembered that boats need to be waterproof so that they don’t sink so some of us had to protect the boats that we had made.

When we were half-way through our boat building session, we had to stop and take a look at what we had completed so far. We moved around the groups to see what everyone else had been working on. Then we chose someone else’s boat to evaluate, remembering the three important rules. Once we had offered advice to someone else, we went back to our boats to complete them. Take a look below at the start and finished products.
