Illuminated stables

Bluebirds were very pleased with their illuminated stables. After investigating electrical circuits, the children were able to use the lightbulb to represent the star, leading the way to where Jesus was born. The children designed and tested ways to make their cardboard figures stand independently too. Well done Bluebirds, they look amazing!

Bluebirds have evaluated their DT project to reflect upon what went well and how they would improve it if they did it again.

Moving picture with lever


We have just completed our D&T project where we have been making a moving picture using a lever. We had to think of a picture with a moving part that was to do with the Stone Age.

First of all we had to make the lever, attach it to the back of our picture, decorate the front and then we made some legs so that it stands up.
