In Year 2 our STEM challenge this week was to create a cabasa for the nature garden. We started the week looking at what a cabasa is and which family it belongs to. We completed a Kahoot quiz, which Paige scored 100%! After this we designed our own cabasa, thinking about which materials would be suitable for the outdoors and how we could create the scraping and rattling sound. Layla and Ivy were excellent at evaluating their design as they completed it. On Thursday we worked in small groups to make our instruments. Some of us found this quite tricky but we worked as a team and supported one another. We are looking forward to playing our instruments with Reception and Year 1 today!
