I agree - google sketch-up is a challenging piece of free software that helps inspire children to heights you would not have thought possible.
Take a look at these Egyptian pyramid-inspired designs by Y4 children. We did them a couple of years ago - I have included similar in this year's ICT scheme of work.


Excellent use of Sketchup. We've recently installed it, however I was weary it may be too complex for the Year 5/6 children but this gives me hope! Thanks for sharing.

My year six class really enjoyed watching your video tutorial yesterday.

Very interesting and inspiring. I don't now if you've seen Planner 5D, planner5d.com, but it's worth a look. I'm torn between this and Sketchup for my next session with Y5/6. I can see pros and cons of both.
Still, I've got 1/2 term to ponder that choice!


Started using Sketchup 2016 with new curriculum. Amazing piece of kit. Yes, just focus on the basics like Simon has said, but Year 5 are more than capable - Don't worry Chris
I only taught them how to build one wall and create a window - you should see the results!
