Design and Technology

This is what top notch DT looks like in Nursery. It is using two very different type of materials but followed the same method. Both children had an idea of what they wanted to achieve, they looked for what they needed and revised the plan in case they couldn't find something. They make with a clear plan, they remain focused till they have completed their intended idea and then show their work off to the adults with pride!

Summer 1 2021 in nursery is all about jobs, one of these is builder. Children have been using different shapes and sized construction to make different structures. Some are towers and some are enclosed spaces.

Nursery have really enjoyed building in their free play in Spring 1. We really have gone along the lines of go big or go home!

Year 1- Healthy Heating

In D&T we have been learning about where the fruits and vegetables we eat come from. We have been very surprise to learn how far some of our food has to travel! We talked about healthy eating and have enjoyed making healthy fruit smoothies. 

Over the last few weeks, Class 4 has been learning about materials and the different ways of joining them such as glueing, sellotaping, sewing or using screws or nails for stronger materials. We used this knowledge to design and make our own sock puppet using a variety of joining techniques, some of us even had a go at sewing. 

While reading "The train ride" F1 made their own trains and one huge train! We experimented the best way to join materials together to get the effect we wanted.

In F2 we have designing and creating buildings, vehicles and adventure playgrounds! We especially loved designing and building Hindu temples

Class 5 designed, made and evaluated our own healthy pasta salad to link with our Science work on keeping healthy.

in nursery we love to design and construct! We use large and small construction from bricks or boxes to, well anything we can find!
