Year 3 children had a nice D&T challenge this term. They used a 60 cm stick of wood to create their very own picture frames. They handled a mini-hacksaw and double-sided bench hook using a careful technique. They used a hand drill to drill a small hole for a hook. With supervision, they worked with a glue gun to assemble each side of their frames. Finally, they painted their picture frames and inserted their hooks.
In Art class, after learning about Georgia O’Keeffe, the children used watercolour pencils to recreate oversized flowers in her style of art. You can admire their D&T and Art skills displayed on one of our dining room’s display boards.
