Building Tudor Houses

Everyone has settled well into Holly class and are getting used to the new routines and independence expected in Year 1.

In our Design and Technology lessons, we are building Tudor houses as this links to our History topic of ‘The Great Fire of London’. We started by experimenting with different ways to join paper and card – from glue and sellotape to treasury tags and split pins.

We decided that sellotape was the most secure method along with masking tape, so we decided to use masking tape to hold our boxes together as this will enable them to be painted. Folding and taping the boxes was tricky but we managed it by working together. A great team effort!
