Design and Technology
23 May 2021 (by admin)
After studying ways to join textiles together using sewing techniques in Art lessons, children have designed and made soft toys as part of their DT learning this half term.
We examined the ways in which toy products were designed and made in order to create a toy suitable for a children aged three to six. Design considerations included what the toy would be made from, the safety aspects for a younger child and the design purpose the toy would fulfill. A range of ideas were developed. These included younger children using their soft toy in role play situations to develop language skills, to its use to look attractive and friendly with specially designed longer arms (so that they could be used for a cuddle for comfort in case the owner was scared). What a fantastic job everyone did in turning their design ideas into amazing final products! The children really enjoyed applying their skills and making the toys..
