Eating seasonally

Class 6 began their D&T project by looking at different climates around the world. They identified how these differing climates affects which fruit and vegetables can be grown in different countries. They realised that not all the fruits and vegetables eaten in the U.K. can be grown here and, therefore, some are imported from other countries.

Class 6 investigated the features of a variety of different castles. They used this information to draw and label their own castle. In literacy they used their drawing to create a piece of descriptive writing reinforcing the names of the different features.

Using 3D shapes the children practised creating a castle structure. They quickly realised that some of their designs would not work successfully and had to adapt their plans accordingly.
