Yr 3 Designing this week...

What does a shark, train, snowman and a lighthouse all have in common?  They are just some of the nightlights under construction in Year 3’s D&T lessons.  Made out of cardboard, newspaper, plastic cups and bits of wood, in fact anything that has a good shape, the children have been constructing armatures robust enough to take modroc (a plaster bandage).  Once the night lights are completed Year 3 will have to use their knowledge of circuits to wire up their night lights before adding the finishing touches.
