DT Day

17th Oct 2017

On Wednesday 11th October, UKS2 had a D.T day. We brought together our reading and art and made our own Charlotte's Web. At first it was quite tricky but once we got the hang of it, it became easier. We had to paint our boards in preparation for the day so that they were dry. We used hammers and nails to pin point the web. Threading the string was difficult until you got used to the pattern.
