Year 5 DT Project

Year 5 have started to create their DT project for this term. We have started to create fruit pouches, for ourselves or a friend/family member, which links to our Fairtrade topic.
First of all the children investigated different bags and pouches, looking specifically at how they fasten. Then they designed their fruit pouch using a design specification. Once they had completed their plan, we created a prototype out of paper. Then… onto the sewing!
The children worked so hard and persevered whilst sewing their felt pouch together. Tomorrow we are going to hole punch holes into the top of the pouch to allow for a draw string fastening. More pictures to follow!
