In Design and Technology, the children will be focusing on Textiles. Their learning journey will consist of three main stages:


  • Design
  • Make
  • Evaluate


The children will be working towards making a hand puppet themed around African wild animals. They will learn how to sew a running stitch ready to design, make and decorate a puppet using a template. They will select from and use a range of tools and equipment to perform practical tasks e.g. cutting/ shaping/ joining and finishing. Then, they will give verbal and written feedback to peers on final product.
