Progression of Skills in Design Technology

Our Griffins were brain-storming and selecting appropriate materials for joining fabric together!

Here at Stella, we love to get our chef hats on by making lots of yummy food! In Reception, they have made a variety of spectacular goodies over the year, for all to enjoy. Making biscuits, pancakes and other treats is a great way for our youngest learners to develop their fine motor skills whilst also learning to use a range of tools and equipment. Here you can also see some of the learning in Year 3. The children in Year 3 were developing their chopping, slicing and mixing skills, as outlined in our progression of skills. They invited the parents in to taste some of their lovely baking and sandwiches! In these pictures you can see the transition throughout the years and how the children's skills have progressed. 

Year 3 made robots! The children had to measure, mark out, cut and assemble a variety of materials with accuracy.

Look at how the Griffins have combined History and Technology in this pair task! They made their own Viking shields!

The Dragons have been exploring materials before they make their animal masks! Which materials would you choose?

Even during a lockdown Stella pupils designed and made their own Mars rovers!
