Design & Technology



Inspired by Harry D, we have decided to design, make and evaluate bird feeders. We have followed the design process and had lots of fun making  them. We will be hanging them on the trees on Friday 29th January and counting the number of birds that come and visit us. Mrs Ardern will be sending the results to the RSPB. 



We had a quick go at making pop-up cards! Some of us needed a LOT of practise before we got the hang of it! Here are a few examples!

YEAR 3 and 4


TA DA!! Here are our finished star panels. We organised ourselves really well. We managed to sew our seams and create one long banner! Super stitching everyone!

YEAR 5 and 6


Our table decorations are looking good. Next week we will evaluate them against our original design brief. Mrs Ardern was really impressed by the way we incorporated the circuit wires into the actual design! Nice idea Lola! Big thanks to Maddie and Emma who brought in wood from home - faboulous girls!

We evaluated our designs!

Year 5 and 6


Our standing table decs are progressing well. This week we designed an electrical circuit to a bulb or two....or three! It will be fun incorporating them into our structures! 

Year 3 and 4


Our panels are progressing nicely! have a look at our stars! Some of us have even sewn buttons on this week!



Year 5 and 6


We are busy designing our STANDING CHRISTMAS TABLE DECORATION! We have been given the design brief and have thought about the end user. Some of us have even consulted with our 'clients' to find out what they think of the design so far! Our final designs will include stars and be amazing! Watch this space!

Year 3 and 4


We are designing and making a Christmas star panel. We have completed a focused practical task that improved our sewing skills, ready for when we make the real thing! Mrs Ardern is really impressed with our designs so far! Our paper patterns were very useful! Watch this space to see the finished results!
