Year 4 wow day
On our Wow day, the children used their design to sew their own face mask. Before making them, they had to practice different stitches so they could choose which was the best one to use. Also, the children were set a challenge to design and sew their own Christmas Tree decoration without any adult help! The mystery judge, Mrs Clayton, found it very difficult to choose a winner in each class. Congratulations to Nayan and Teodora.
The completed masks were great and the children worked incredibly hard.
Year 2 DT day
On Monday 30 November Year 2 had a DT morning making a healthy bread based snack. They had already researched different types of snacks deciding which ones were healthy. They had also tasted different breads so they could choose their favourite for their snack. Using what they knew about a healthy balanced diet they designed what they were going to make. They included bread, either cheese, ham, or chicken and a vegetable. In preparing the snack they carefully used the skills of peeling, slicing and grating. Finally , they assembled their snack and ate it! It was delicious!
