This term, in Design Technology, Year 6 have been working with textiles. As part of the design process they spent some time researching items made from textiles and making mood boards of designs and fabrics that inspired them. The children then used a design brief, and their mood boards and research, to produce a plan for how they would make their textile design. After using paper to make prototypes and patterns, learning and practising a range of stiches and passing their sewing machine driving test, the children were finally ready this week to start making! The children have been give a wide brief and so there are a great variety of things being made, from a Christmas stockings, pencil cases & bags, to cuddly toys.
Great work Year 6; we can’t wait to see your finished designs!
