Design Technology


Today, year 1 have been writing instructions as the pupils made their own pumpkin soup… they then got to try it! The pupils all practised their chopping skills and discussed the ingredients needed to make the tasty soup.

Barnsley Library…

Our Year Three pupils have started a series of nine sessions at Barnsley Library to work on a programme to develop the children’s understanding of stem learning.  The pupils have enjoyed starting these lessons. We will share the final projects at the end of the course with parents.

Sandwich fillings…

Year 3 have spent time analysing and tasting different sandwich fillings before designing and refining their own sandwiches. The children really enjoyed creating their own sandwiches , then taste testing them with their friends. Finally, the children evaluated their sandwiches, thinking about what changes they might make next time to improve it.

Traditional Tales

For our topic of Traditional Tales this week our story focus was The Gingerbread Man. We designed our Gingerbread Men and used our Phonics knowledge to write our shopping list of the ingredients we would need. We then all had a go at weighing, mixing and cutting out the dough. Once they were baked we decorated them and they seemed to all disappear before the end of the day…!

DT Skills

We completed a carousel of DT skills activities in preparation of making our models of new town developments. We did some cutting, making of 3D nets, attaching cylinders, measuring and sawing wood, gluing different  materials to make frames and adding triangles to strengthen our creations.
