“I’ll huff and I’ll puff” - Strawbale building with schools!

4th February 2013

Woodmatters ran a strawbale building workshop with Key Stage 1 inspired by 'the Alternative Three Little Pigs Story' where the wolf is actually nice and friendly!

The children worked hard together to design and construct their own straw house learning key features of strawbale building techniques including splitting and staking the bales.

Their efforts were rewarded by a nice cup of hot chocolate as they proudly sat in their straw house!

"Thank you so much again for all the hard work on Friday - it was fabulous.

Just to let you know we did a writing activity today about it and they just wouldn't stop! One of our children really struggles with writing and they wrote loads all about the shelter building. So great success once again" Teacher
