Design and Technology
This half-term the children will be completing a design and technology unit called 'Homes'. The children will become budding architects with these lessons. Full of practical activities and inspirational ideas, the children will design, make and evaluate their own model houses. This topic links nicely with our Humanities learning which is all about where we live. We will need some cardboard boxes!
I can create a simple design for my product
I can use pictures and words to describe what I want to do

I can use a range of simple tools to cut, join and combine materials and components safely
I can build structures, exploring how they can be made stronger, stiffer and more stable
I can talk about my design as I develop it and identify good and bad points
I can say what I like and do not like about items I have made and attempt to say why
We will be performing a Nativity play with Year 2 and Reception just before Christmas. Our music learning this term is based on singing. We will be learning songs by heart and getting ready to perform!
