Design Technology


We heave been learning about Architects and what they do. Today the children learnt about the net of a 3D shape. They each got to cut out a net and try to build their own 3D shape.


Today we were ARCHITECTS! 

We have been designing a new house for Jack and his mum to live in now that they are rich from stealing the golden hen! 

The children were able to tell me which type of house they were designing, drew it on our special squared paper and then they used a net of a cuboid and triangular prism to make a prototype.

We talked about how we need to be precise with our cutting skills and concentrate to put the net together to make a 3D shape. 

Tomorrow we will be using card to make the houses stronger.

Check out our new houses for Jack and his Mum! 

Some children made flats, terraced, detached, semi detached and cottages! 

We talked about how it was so much easier working with card today and using sellotape as well as glue to ensure the structure was sturdy. 

The children are so proud of their houses! ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ˜๏ธ๐Ÿข
