In DT this Year 1 have ‘scone mad’ with their baking. We have practised lots of new cooking skills, making fantastic links to our Queens and Castles unit. The children have thoroughly enjoyed tasting scones and then trailing our different recipes. The children were even able to spend an afternoon doing lots of baking ready for our street party for History Off the Page.
As design technologists, the children investigated different types of puppets. They thoroughly enjoyed experimenting with the different techniques and practising their cutting, joining and sewing skills. The children then focused on designing their own puppet, thinking of features a puppet needs and the materials available to them. Once they had finished designing, they followed their designs to create individual puppets.
