Year 1 Design and Technology

Following our work on houses and homes and our walk to view different types of homes, we designed , made and evaluated our own home.  We had a focus on making hinges so that the doors and windows would open.

First we looked for hinges and found them in many places in the classroom, some Mrs Whyman didn’t even think of!

We then practised making different types of hinges and joins that we would use on our homes.

We then made our homes and evaluated them.


We also made homes from building blocks.
