Town planning and construction

Last week we received a letter from some elves, who had had the unfortunate luck to have had their town blown down by the strong winds. They asked us if we might be able to help them plan and rebuild their town. The children came up with lots of good ideas about what would be needed in a town and listed many key public buildings (There was even a hospital, which we presume to be run by the National Elf Service!) They then set about using the 3d shapes to build. Whilst this was happening, there were lots of discussions about what the shapes were called and how many faces they had etc. When they had finished, the children took a tour of the town and explained their construction to each other.

MoshiMonsters

Moshi Monsters is an online social game popular with 6-12 year olds that allows children to choose, customise and nurture a pet monster. Children can play games, solve puzzles and explore Monstro City with their pet. There are a range of safety features and advice available.
