Design Technology ~ Spring Term


Week 3

We worked on our sewing skills today. We had to make small stitches keeping the same sized space between each stitch. 


Week 2

Today we have designed our own fairy tale puppets using our design criteria. 


Week 1 

Today we have been identifying different fabrics and other materials that have been used for existing puppets. We have described their properties in groups and why we think they are suited to that part of the puppet. 


We wrote a design criteria together. This will go on our work next week when we start designing. 





Our topic this term is puppets. We are going to be designing, making and evaluating over our lessons together this term. 


Look out for some new puppet additions to our role play area! It has been transformed into Shrek's very own swamp puppet theatre.

 We can't wait!

KS1 Big Draw

We worked together today to create a 'Big Draw'.
We had the freedom to express our own ideas.
Mutual respect was the key to our success.
We didn't draw over anyone else's ideas.
Some of us heard stories from other cultures.
We created some of our own Aboriginal stories.
Here's the story of how Koala got his stumpy tail.
We learnt about the religious groups in our area.
We used tracing paper to sketch like Quentin Blake
We want to encourage respect for others' beliefs.
Here is Chesterfield's Crooked Spire.
We created a giant Rangoli to welcome others.
