What has been happening in Design Technology lessons this year at Westerhope Primary School?

Greek Day was great for demonstrating our baking and cookery skills so that Year 5 could design and make their own Greek dishes.

Year 5 worked on electrical power and mechanisms to drive the wheels of their space buggies.

Year 3 have been finding out about the food Stone Age people ate. They made pitta breads, stone age stew and a fruit pudding. The children loved having a Stone Age feast.
Year 3 have been using lots of DT skills to make their own playdough, stone age spears and roundhouses. Come and see our work displayed outside our classrooms.

Year 6 building upon their previous textiles work with their heraldic ‘Harry Potter’ scalf design. All ready for the trip to Alnwick Castle.

We love working alongside 'Technology Tom' on design projects. All our classes will have this opportunity over the school year. This year 2 class have been looking at how we use the wind to propel a vehicle. They considered aspects of the chassis design and wheels before the sail design. The land yachts were then test with giant hair dryers!

Our pupils have been thinking about food technology and the way we combine flavours to make healthy, nutritious meals. A chef from Chartwell’s came into school with the ‘On Your Marks’ cooking challenge. The children were invited to consider what makes a healthy meal then to prepare and taste the final dishes. Of course we had a bit of fun with timing of the cooking and the voting afterwards. They might try the recipes at home with their family.
