Term One 


DT - Making Windmills

In Design and Technology, the children designed a windmill for their client a mouse. They followed the instructions to construct and assemble their windmill and some of them even turned. Fantastic work!




Term Two 


Honeybees followed a map of the school and were able to identify the key areas of the school. Great map work. 



Term Three

Design Technology

In our DT unit this term the children chose a storybook character to base their puppet designs on. The children learnt how to join fabrics together using pins, staples or glue. They designed a puppet and used a template. Then, joined their two puppets’ faces together as one and decorated a puppet to match their design. Dragonfly Class tested out their puppet in their puppet theatre.
