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.
