Year 2 Grand Designs

The Year 2 children have had lots of fun using design and technology skills to construct a model of the Old Farmhouse at The Croft. We started by sketching the building, noticing all the tiny details. The children brought in various sized boxes which they used as templates for ‘nets’. They then used their sketches to draw the details of the house - windows and doors - on to the flat nets, making sure they would be the right way up when they became three-dimensional! The children really enjoyed this process and, pictured above, are some of the finished houses.
