DESIGN TECHNOLOGY - HOMES

 

This half term, Year 1 have been looking at Homes during our DT sessions. To begin with, we looked at different types of homes and identified the different shapes. Next, we worked in small groups and chose suitable materials to create our models, focusing on the exterior and interior. Finally, we made a final design and followed it to create our end product. We had some fantastic results.
