School Year 6 DT exhibition
Wednesday, 19th February, 2003
|An exhibition of design technology by Year 6 pupils held in the school hall.
Photographs kindly supplied by Maria Petherick who writes:
|"The year six children have been working on a ‘shelters’ project for the last half term. (Spring 1st half) They have been designing, appraising and redesigning their shelters both at school and at home.|
|The children have worked individually or as a member of a group. They have designed their shelters thinking about the materials and the tools they need and with a given scale in mind.|
|The children have enjoyed the project, and wanted to stage an exhibition for the children at school and parents to see.
The children wanted to create a ‘small world scene’, putting their shelters amongst trees, bushes, street lamps and vehicles they had made; giving a better impression of scale.
|The children have gained a lot from the project, working as a team has been essential, discussing their designs, improving them and incorporating everyone’s ideas has developed these team building skills further.|
|Now the exhibition has been held the Y6 children would like to say thank you to the children of class 2 for their letters of congratulations, and many of the shelters have been given to the younger pupils at the school for them to enjoy.
Well done year 6 ! "
