05 Dec Year 3 Make Shell Structures During D&T Week
This week for Design and Technology, year 3 have been learning all about shell structures. We learnt that they are structures with a solid outer surface but a hollow inside. We began the week by looking at different types of packaging, which we then deconstructed and found out that they were made from nets. We explored constructing different 3D shapes from nets. We then designed our own gift boxes for a friend or relative, thinking about the shape and the design of the box. Finally, we made our own gift boxes. We enjoyed adding the finishing touches, such as ribbon, glitter and sequins.
