Year One have been working hard in DT.
We designed a sock puppet, thinking carefully about the materials we would need and how we would join the different parts. Next we made our puppets. It took a lot of perseverance! Our teachers helped us to cut pieces of fabric and sew. Finally we will be evaluating our puppets, thinking about what went well and what could be improved.
Our key text has been Dogger by Shirley Hughes. We have been learning the story using the Talk for Writing method - repeating it every day and using actions to help us remember. This week we wrote the story of Dogger. Talk for Writing really helped us to remember the beginning, middle and end of the story. Everyone tried very hard and wrote fantastic stories!
