Design and Technology (Building structures)

Lesson: Design and technology

Class: Year 1B Year: 2017 - 2018

As part of our Julia Donaldson study, we looked at the story of 'The Smartest Giant in Town'. During our study of the story we had a message from the mouse. He asked for our help to make a table for him and his family. We worked very hard to build a table using polystyrene tiles, art straws and blue tack. 

After we had completed our designs, we were then asked to make tables for the other characters in the story! We thought carefully about our models and designed them carefully. We used wood, cardboard, art straws and a range of other materials to help us. We even got to use a glue gun (with support from Mrs Boon) to stick our table together! 

We enjoyed testing our products and they could all stand on their own and hold a cup for the characters- We were very proud of our products!
