We have now completed our Anderson Shelters for our Design and Technology.
We are very proud of the final results: it was a very full day of hard work, creativity and, for a few pupils, a false start or two! In the end, we got there and could not be happier with the outcomes!
The design process started some weeks ago, the children started by researching the history of Anderson Shelters in the context of their use during the blitz. They learnt lots about them but, particularly in relation to our Design and Technology, they found out about material and design choices. After that, the children created diagrams that were fully labelled and measured - these allowed them to think ahead about how the final project would look. Finally, after a couple of weeks collecting material, Year 6 built these fabulous shelters.
Well done everyone - great job!
In Year 6, we have been reading and enjoying 'The Giant's Necklace', by Michael Morporgo. We worked as a team to recognise the key events within the story and place them on a chronological timeline that we created.
By understanding how to sequence key events, the structure of a text and chracter actions, we will be able to structure our own short stories, in a similar style!
