Form 1 Design and Technology
Form 1 are making mangonels in Design and Technology.
Once a week the children go to the DT room to learn how to apply the skills they have learnt in the classroom such as measuring and finding angles. The children have learnt how to measure accurately, saw their wood and glue it together using Jinks corners. At each stage they have evaluated their work, thinking about the things that went well and what could have been done better. Their confidence in using saws has really improved, as have their listening and thinking skills. The children, when finished, will have a competition to see which mangonel fires the furthest!
