Christmas Cards and Calendars
Blog by Hannah Robson
Before the Christmas break, Class 9 had a few fun activities planned. Alongside the Origami heaven, we made Christmas cards / calendars. The cards were specially designed by us individual children, with our own unique design. We gave the cards to anybody we chose. Mrs Giles provided us with some utensils for using on our card design. The creativity of Class 9 blew up! Everyone's cards were amazing.
We also made calendars based on the topic, 'flower'. These were very fun to make, and it also helped us to grow our social skills whilst working alongside our peers. We worked in small groups at a time and taught step by step how to make a 3D calendar. If we got stuck we would just call it a FAIL (First Attempt In Learning).
Nobody was left out and we all had so much fun. We got to take them home to stick on our walls or fridges or anywhere!
Another successful lesson and another treasure to keep whilst making memories!
Harton DT Visit
Recently, Class 9 went on a trip to Harton Academy. We went into the DT room and learnt how to make our own key rings. These were made out of hard plastic. We picked multiple animal shapes for our designs and watched them being cut by a laser cutter. It was very satisfying! We also got to pick what we wanted to write on it - only up to three letters though. Most people did their initials.
We got to take them home to show family and friends.
This day was a lot of fun!
