Cliona’s First class were boatbuilding this week. Cliona says ‘We started this project by investigating various materials in the school garden that float and sink. We then used this information to plan and design our boats. Next we set about making our boats using materials gathered in the garden. We wanted to try to use as many natural materials as possible so that our boats could decompose afterwards. Iain showed us some stick weaving techniques, which we used to hold the different parts of the boats together. Finally we tested the boats to see if they could float. We are so proud of how hard we worked on this project!’
