This week, the year six children have completed their termly project. I was really inspired with the students’ ability to draw out a plan, cut out and measure the appropriate materials they needed and then build their settings over a three – part session. The construction of their horror scenes encouraged the students to experiment, make mistakes and learn from their own experiences to reach correct outcomes. I was rather impressed with their critical thinking skills, logical analysis and project-based learning.
One of our excited pupils said, “This type of learning gives you an idea or a clear picture in your head what the setting of your story is going to be. Also, D.T. projects help you become more creative and increases your imagination.”
