Year 5 Chair-making Workshop
15 Nov 2011
This week, children in Year 5 have embarked upon their Design & Technology (DT) Chair-making project.
Their design for a chair was based on the use of recycled materials, which they have been keenly collecting for the past few weeks.
Production has now commenced in the DT Chair Workshop at an energetic pace. Groups have been measuring, cutting, sawing, gluing, rolling, binding, knotting and weaving with their recycled materials. Chairs in progress incorporate the use of tyres, corrugated card, strips of felt and yarn, newspaper rolls, cardboard prism tubes, corks and plastic bottles!
