In DT we have been completing our Food unit- we were assigned a task by Willy Wonka to develop a brand new biscuit recipe. The children were all very excited and began by exploring and rating a number of biscuits- yum! We have also researched and compared recipes, looked at healthier options and explored the options of using Fairtrade products, linking to our World Trade unit in Geography. Finally, the children have designed their ‘final product’ and used their computing skills to create a flowchart for the method. We cannot wait to bake our biscuits!
In DT Year 3 has been looking at different types of bread. They also got to taste the different breads and used their vocab list to discuss its texture,smell, taste and appearance. The children then designed a sandwich for a particular purpose and then made their sandwiches. The children had a great time. Some children couldn’t wait to eat their sandwiches, others took theirs home so they could share their sandwich.
In DT, Year 2 have been looking at different types of puppets. We have made finger puppets and designed and made our own glove puppets. We even had a try at sewing but we found it very difficult!
