Design & Technology
2022 - 2023
Victorian rug making
We have started to build a Roman onager or catapult. On Friday 19th November 21 we had to measure the wood into different lengths and cut it using a saw.
Completing our catapults 14.12.21
We have worked hard to complete our catapults. We had to measure and cut some dowel and use a glue gun to secure it to our frame. We then used drawing pins to attach the bottle top and the elastic bands.
Testing our catapults 14.12.21
Stone Age Tunics Friday 8th April 2022
Class 3 have designed and made their Stone Age tunics. They selected the animal material they wanted to make they tunic out of and have sewn it onto the tunic. To challenge and extend their learning they could sew two pieces and / or paint cave painting designs on the back. The children have worked so hard on them. They look great!
Cooking fruit or vegetable paella (rice with fruit or veg) 01.07.22
Linking to our Spanish topic of fruits and vegetables, for design & technology we decided to make a type of sweet or savory paella. The children tasted a selection of different fruits and vegetables and were encouraged to try something new. They all had the opportunity to develop the skill of holding a knife properly and cutting the fruits and vegetables.
" Trying the Paella at the end was the best!" Harry
"Cutting the food with a sharp knife was good." Grace
"Mixing it all together was fun." Logan
" Tasting new food was good, especially the pomegranate seeds." Tom
" I really liked the food." Taylor - Grace
