Year 3 Hot Air Balloons

What an amazing journey it has been!!!
Year 3 children have been working assiduously to finalise their Hot Air Balloons. The last part of the project –attaching the baskets– has come with a challenge. Threading the string through the holes created in the paper-mache balloon required a lot of patience, concentration and fine motor skills. Some children needed support, whereas others demonstrated great skills and managed to finish the balloons by themselves.
Once the 3 or 4 strings have been threaded, they attached the cups ( baskets ). Another challenging part for them was to tie a string knot, but with assistance they’ve succeeded.
The final products looked exquisite and the Year 3 children have been extremely proud of themselves!
