In DT last term, year 6 were set the challenge of designing their own playground. They were all very excited to get started and had lots of great ideas. Over the six weeks they showed excellent team work to create their dream playgrounds. They chose their own materials to suit their designs and playground equipment. They had to carefully measure, mark, cut and join them securely. When the children chose wood as their materials they were able to safely use the bench hooks, hack saws and tenon saws. To join their materials together they had the option of using cellotape, masking tape, PVA glue or hot glue. The children made their own decisions and if it did not work they had to choose an alternative way to solve their problem. As you can see they worked so hard and should be very proud of their playgrounds.
