DT

Hello everyone.

Design and Technology is the perfect subject for all of our budding engineers to design and create new things. 

I have come up with a few ideas of things you can make easily with materials you may already have at home. 

Have fun. 

Junk modelling is a fantastic way to recycle many things you would usually throw away. 

A toilet roll insert or a cereal box can be transformed in to many things. 

Why not have a go at making something whilst helping out the environment through recycling. 

Socks are not just for keeping your feet warm. Socks can be made in to some fantastic puppets.

A sock could be the Easter bunny or a funny looking puppet, you could have hours of fun putting on a puppet show using your old socks. 

Lego, K'nex and Duplo are fantastic tools for Design and Technology. 

You could design a new theme park and create it with K'nex or make a bug hotel using Lego. 

Construction kits and materials such as these are great ways of exploring design and engineering. 

Activity of the week. 

DT isn't just about making things, so this week I would like to concentrate on designing. 

EYFS- Design a new Easter Egg- yum! 

Key Stage One- Design some new packaging for your favourite Easter Egg, make sure it is bright and colourful to attract people and persuade them to buy it.

Key Stage Two- I challenge you guys to design a moving vehicle that can transport a hard boiled egg without dropping it and breaking it. 

I would love to see all of your designs, you can find my Email address over on the Year Two page.

Have fun.  

Information for Parents on Online Safety - this is extra important at this time.
