Designing, making and evaluating a chair for Baby Bear.

We looked at existing chairs and used this knowledge as well as our previous understanding of strength, stiffness and stability to design a chair for Baby Bear. We built upon our knowledge in KS1 of triangles being used to strengthen and considered cylinders in our design. We made a chair using cutting and joining skills and then evaluated them. Here are our finished products. 

Making an egg based dish with a side salad and dressing

Children designed an egg based dish for someone in the community. Their dish also had a side salad which children prepared using their knife safety skills, as well as a dressing which helped children understand about the different components in a simple dressing. Children used annotated diagrams to design their product before preparing, cutting, mixing and cooking the various ingredients. Children then tasted their products to evaluate them against their design brief.
