Year 6 were lucky enough to be invited to participate in a variety of skill-building workshops as part of the ‘SkillBuild’s South West Regional Heat, which was hosted by South Devon College. Children were given the opportunity to have a go at wooden box construction, painting and decorating , plumbing and electrical wiring. Tommy Walsh, who used to be part of the BBC’s ‘Ground Force Team,’ demonstrated how to lay bricks and then some of the children constructed their own walls. They also took part in competitive challenges which involved creating pyramids from canes and elastic bands, block-building challenges and spaghetti and blu tac tower construction.
As you can see, the children really enjoyed themselves.
