DT in Year 5

Over the last week, Year 5 have been focusing on designing bags. To help us, we looked at a range of different bags, thought about their uses and why their specific materials were used. We also considered a range of fastenings when looking at bags and when they would be used. We evaluated our initial designs before creating our final ones and then create paper prototypes. This helped us to work out what we might need to change in our final designs whilst allowing us to have a go at seam allowances. We also evaluated a range of different stitches and thought about which would be best. Next it was on to making our bags which we all enjoyed doing although tying knots was quite tricky.
