“Making a Biscuit House” Project

Dear Parents and Children,

Be aware that we are reaching the end of the IPC unit on Buildings. It has been an interesting exploration of the nature and purpose of the buildings around us. For the exit activity of the unit, we would like to celebrate our learning by building a biscuit house and demonstrate our understanding of how buildings are constructed.

This will require some preparation of the materials to be used. The school will provide some of the materials needed in the form of the cardboard base, wafer biscuits for the walls, waffle wafers for the roof and yummy melting chocolate for cementing the pieces together.

We require from you: any additional decorations for their house such as extra biscuits, jelly candies, m&m, lolly pops for trees, candy stones and an empty milk carton as a house frame if you wish. Please see the pictures below as a guide to see what the finished product might look like.

Please ensure that “NO NUT products” are sent to the school accidentally!

This project will be carried out during class time in the morning (9.30 am – 12.00 pm) on Wednesday, the 8th of November.

Any  parents are welcome to volunteer to assist the classes with this project. We look forward to it. Thank you.
