Activity 4

See sheet below and have a go at tying lots of different knots.  What can you make using your knots and some sticks?



Activity 5

Loose Parts Challenge


There are some incredible landmarks across the UK, from Big Ben to Edinburgh Castle. Recreate some of your favourite famous landmarks to save you having to go and visit them all!
• Your landmark could be a manmade building or structure, or a natural feature.
• Think carefully about what size it should be – should it include certain shapes?
• What specific features does your landmark need to have?
• You could use natural materials that you can find outside or manmade materials.
• Look at a photo of the landmark to try to add more attention to detail.


You could also

  • Add some tourists who are enjoying their visit to the landmark.
  •  Make facilities such as a car park etc.
  •  Create the landmark from different perspectives e.g. birds eye view etc.
  • Write an advert or make a poster to encourage people to visit your site.
