Design Technology

Year 1 and 4 took part in an Engineering Competition earlier this year. We were visited by 3 Apprentice Engineers who answered all our questions and gave us advice. We then thought of a product to design.

During DT lessons Year 1 have made moving pictures. This was tricky at first but we didn’t give up.


Year 6 have thrown ourselves into the world of puppetry! We were joined by Tom (a master puppeteer) to help us create WW1 Indian Soldier puppets – they were amazing! The children used so many different skills and we wanted to transfer this to making a puppet of our own. With the Christmas Fayre coming up, the children decided to make the characters from ‘Twas’ The Night before Christmas.’  They designed it, chose materials, and researched ideas, improved upon the original process and Orange group created a flow chart, using each shape correctly! The puppets look fantastic and we hope, as mini apprentices, we make a little profit from the Christmas Fayre!
