D&T Week Homework

Dear Parents,

This week is D&T week. So far in the lead up to this week we have been developing our understanding of structures and architecture in our community and comparing these with different communities around the world. We have also been looking at what materials are needed to build a house and special features of houses in England that ensure insulation. Furthermore, we have explored how we get electricity to our homes and how electricity helps us in everyday life.


As a homework project this week we would like you and your child to have some fun in designing and creating your own 3D model of a house. It could be a house from England or you may like to look into houses from around the world and try to replicate this. Get as creative as you like, in the process talk to your child about the materials you will need, how you will ensure the materials stay together, how will your structure be stable, what features do you need to include, and so forth, Please do not make your structure any bigger than an approximate shoe box size as we would like to put these on display in our school. Feel free to write about the process in the creation of your structure. This D&T project will be due Monday 30th November.

Thank you for your support and HAVE FUN!

The Lanchester Year 1 Team.
