In Technology this week year 6 have completed a project to make a model playground. From this project we have really developed our thinking linked to structures and strengthening of frameworks. It has helped us progress a lot of technology skills like: sawing wood, measuring and cutting pieces to length, thinking about size, attaching parts using pva glue, hot glue from a glue gun, florists wire and even tieing bits with string. We have also worked in pairs and developed communication skills and learned that team work makes the project much easier to do. We had to be tenacious and persevere with lots of tricky and fiddly bits: we certainly worked very hard. Here are some of the many examples of playground structures we created.
