Year 6 Design and Technology

By Design Technology, Mental Health, Year 2, Year 6

For DT, Year 6 needed to make a product for a client.  Their clients this year were Year 2 children.  The Year 2 children were asked to create a character for their Amygdala (the part of the brain that controls the fight, flight or freeze reactions).  Their designs would be brought to life by the Year 6 children completing a textiles project to turn the designs in to a soft toy.

Throughout the process, the children have had to have client meetings to discuss designs and fabrics etc..  They learned about different types of stitches, seam allowance and different finishings such as embroidery.  With help from their families and friends, the year 6 children spent an afternoon sewing the products.

The Year 2 children have finally received their products and they are over the moon with them.

Here are some examples:

Y6 had a fabulous time in London.

We visited many different places.

Our visit supported our curriculum: In the British Museum, children remembered previous history learning about Romans, Greeks and Egyptians.

We visited the Tower of London to support our Crime and Punishment learning in Y6.

We walked around London, thinking and looking at geographical features and completing fieldwork about Where is Buckingham Palace.

The Tate Modern was an interesting visit for the children to recognise different styles of art and artist.

We also watched the West-End show SIX

Y6 Science

Our topic in Science is Light.  The children started the lesson trying to explain how they thought they could see objects.  They then investigated how light travelled and discovered that light travels in straight lines.
