Cleadon Church of England Academy

Design Technology in School

In Year 2 the children in school and at home have been challenged to make a replica Sydney Harbour Bridge as they have been learning about Australia this half term.

Our Year 5 and 6 children have been taking part in some food technology this term. They practiced using tools like graters when they made pizza, they also thought about food hygiene and how to follow a step by step recipe.

In Design Technology Year 6 designed and made their own model air-raid shelters. They had to think about suitable materials, safe use of tools and how they were going to fix their models together.

Making our own pasta sauce gave us an opportunity to practice safe knife skills and also to consider healthy eating.
