Year 6 DT Project – Shelters

Office UserYear 6, D.T Curriculum, Koalas, Pandas

The best day ever (again) today! Year 6 had the best time using their design and technology skills to create marvellous shelters that would provide accommodation in times of earthquake, tsunami, The Blitz and other cheery scenarios! Who wouldn’t want to live in a baked bean can or a house on lollipop stilts?

The children created a design and then worked hard to construct their design as best as possible, using small hand saws, glue-guns, sandpaper and a sharp eye for detail. After completion, the children evaluated their finished creation and discussed whether they had made any modifications and how they might improve it next time.

…Best day ever…for the children, not the teachers – there was quite a lot of mess!!
