Today Year 4 have had their third DT day. We focussed on textiles today – particularly looking at fastenings. We analysed fastenings and decided what we liked about them. Then we designed our own book sleeve to meet a specific design criteria. We made a paper version to ensure we got our sizes correct and then we began with fabric.
Year 4 learned that sewing isn’t the easiest, but they persevered and all of them ended the day with a beautifully sewn book sleeve capable of holding their book and reading record. Well done!
