Design and Technology

In Design and Technology, Year 2 created some habitats for woodland creatures using natural resources in the nature-land area of school!

Year 6 kicked off their Pharaohs project with a great creative afternoon using D&T skills (selecting tools, shaping and joining) to create canopic jars and a Egyptian headdress

Year 3 created and tasted a Minnesota Hot Dish this afternoon in Design and Technology. They had to use appropriate equipment and ingredients to create the dish as well as follow instructions.

A busy afternoon in Year 1 making bread just like Thomas Farriner might have made in his bakery on Pudding Lane. They used the basic principles of a healthy and varied diet to prepare the rolls.

Year 5 and 6 have been making Mexican Paletas ( ice lollies) in D& T today and researching their history, inventor and flavours.

Year 5 showed some great knowledge in Design and Technology as they designed, made and evaluated their woodwind instruments made from bottles and inspired by the Maya!

Minotaur heads are beginning to take shape in year 3 using modroc! A great design and technology afternoon!

Year 6 have tried to create their own musical wind instrument in D&T. They had to identify where they needed to cut the object’s shape so it would still make a noise and a functional wind instrument.

This afternoon in Design and Technology, Year 3 created the wings for Icarus and Daedalus after studying the Greek myth in English this week!

Year 3 started to create the packaging for their smoothie product in design and technology. They had to include lots of essential features and make the product eye catching!

Year 5 had a fantastic afternoon creating some toys and games inspired by those used by people during World War 2. They used their design and technology skills to design and make their toy!

Lots of fun this afternoon in Year 3 making their smoothies!!

Year 5 have worked so hard this week with their remembrance art and DT project. They sketched their designs and then transferred them to black paper. They then used a craft knife to cut out their pattern. Finally they cut pieces of tissue paper to the correct size and stuck them to the back of the design to create the finished poppy-themed stained glass windows. It required real patience and precision and the children have excelled themselves.

Year 6 have used D&T skills to manipulate the clay into their chosen poppy shape, selecting the appropriate tools and equipment to complete the task successfully.

A super D&T lesson this afternoon for Year 3 as they made healthy flapjacks to eat later in the week!

Year 4 had a BLAST making fruit rockets and toffee apples this afternoon! 🚀🍎 They used different cooking techniques to prepare and cook simple recipes.

Year 6 had a brilliant day at John Spendluffe for their ‘vehicle of the future’ design day.

Year 3 have been working on their design and technology skills this week by designing a robot with annotations and then using junk modelling to create a final product! They had to skilfully plan which materials would be needed and explain why.

Year 1 have been busy making Brazilian quindim for our project Rio de Vida. Instructions to follow!. The children used the basic principles of a healthy and varied diet to prepare the quindim.
