Year 6 DT – Automata Toys and Cookery

Thu 14 Dec 2023 | Design & Technology, Year 6

Article 31: Children have the right to be creative .

For our DT topic, we have been working with wood to design and make some Victorian-inspired automata toys. The children needed to measure, cut and sand their own wood before gluing it together to make the frame. Seeing as we had our Christmas Fayre coming up, we designed them to have a festive winter theme to attract the audience.

For our other part of the Christmas Fayre, the children baked and decorated some gingerbread characters – including some gingerbread reindeer!
