Commonwealth Games Stadium Constructions

Following on from the bridge-building work earlier this term, Room 14 was set the task of designing their own Commonwealth Games stadium venues. The Learning Intention was to investigate the features of a stadium and create their own version in Minecraft.

The design process was used as a way to think about transformation, the theme for the school year.

Using our day with technology each child chose two Games events to focus on. Then they collected photos and (using arrows and labels) pointed out the venue and its features in detail.

Using the Minecraft PE app a team leader led each group to build event stadia on their Minecraft "worlds".
