Year 6 have been discovering The Vikings this half term. For our DT project we are designing, planning, making and evaluating Viking Long Ships.
This half term the children in Year 3 have been answering the learning challenge question: ‘How did the Early Britons make shelters?’ as part of their DT work.
The children designed their own Stone Age shelter; either a Paleolithic cave or a Mesolithic tent-style home. To make their designs come to life, they molded clay and used sticks to hold them in place. Once the clay had dried, the children painted them in the colours they would have been back in the Stone Age.
Take a look at our fabulous Stone Age settlement!
We loved exploring moving pictures and were completely transfixed to our own creations to make a picture move.
