Year 6 are well under way with their design project for this half term.
The children began looking at Suitors from as early as the 16th Century as inspiration for the project and making drawings of these in their sketch books. The children then created large scale drawings in charcoal of their own inspired by their research and previous observations. These drawings were then further drawn into using coloured inks and paintbrushes.
The next stage for year 6 was to then create a design for a pop-up puppet. After looking at toy pop-up puppets the children planned designs in their sketch books before creating a final design on A3 paper.
The final weeks for this design project will be spent making their pop-up puppets using a variety of materials to do so.
