Design Technology

As part of World Book Day, we completed a DT project where we made a moving picture linked to story. We used the story of The Three Little Pigs. We discussed which parts could move and how we would achieve this. We went on to plan our design and then use this plan to create our moving picture. We used flaps, linkages and levers to create the moving parts.


In art sessions, we have been looking at collage. First, we explored different materials including card, magazines and coloured paper. Next, we decided which we liked and which would be best to use on our picture. We then arranged the materials and glued them onto a picture of the troll from the story The Billy Goats Gruff. We discussed the different colours we could use for the different parts of the image. We are proud of how they look so far.

Design Technology / Literacy

After reading The Gingerbread Man story, we decided to design and create our own gingerbread men. First, we looked at the ingredients list and weighed what we needed. We then followed the recipe step by step to create our own gingerbread men. We designed how we wanted them to look and used icing and chocolate chips to decorate them. Finally, we ate them and they were very yummy! We are going to write our own set of instructions during our literacy sessions, using pictures to help us.


Linked to the story of Jack and the Beanstalk, we have been learning about plants and what they need to grow and be healthy. Then, after finding out about this, we created our own information posters containing all of the facts we found out. Also, we have created our own sprout houses. To do this, we decorated zip lock bags and put broad bean seeds into damp cotton wool. The cotton wool acts like soil and the zip lock bag will keep water and moisture inside to help the plant grow. We are hoping they will grow into our very own beanstalks!
