Design Technology

Below is the Long Term Plan for Design and Technology. We are currently working on Cycle A (2022-2023)
This half-term Class Two have been creating their own Christmas Stockings.
Firstly they enjoyed researching and exploring traditional stockings. They then created their own design ideas and began to cut out and pin their fabric. The children were able to demonstrate their sewing skills by sewing their fabric together using running stiches. Finally the children embellished their stockings using lots of glitter! 
In KS2 children should...
'Select from and use a wider range of tools and equipment to perform practical tasks [for example, cutting, shaping, joining and finishing].' -National Curriculum 2013
This half-term Class One have really enjoyed creating, designing and evaluating picture frames.
Firstly they enjoyed researching the purpose of picture frames. Then they demonstrated their making skills by measuring, cutting and joining pieces of wood. Finally the children decorated their frames using velvet and lots of sequins!
In KS1 children should...
'Design purposeful, functional, appealing products for themselves and other users based on design criteria.' - National Curriculum 2013
