DT Day


Posted by twhales | Posted in Blog Posts | Posted on 26-11-2015

At the beginning of this half term Year 3 received a letter from ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’ explaining that he had been trying to make some sandwiches but everything went wrong. Therefore, he needed Year 3 to make him some new sandwiches to share at an indoor picnic with their parents and write some stories for entertainment.

Year 3 set straight to work and over the past couple of weeks have created some fantastic stories. However, they still needed to make the sandwiches so today they had a design technology day.

Firstly, the children looked at healthy eating.


Then, they  tried and evaluated some different fillings. Not many liked the tuna!

After, we designed our sandwiches, using our design criteria. There were some very interesting ideas!

Next, we created our sandwiches. Whilst half made the sandwiches the other half created a poster about how to do this safely and hygienically.

Lastly. we invited our friends and family in to enjoy the sandwiches and share our stories with us.

Some of the children even wrote something of their own about the day, using the chrome books, for the blog.

‘On Thursday 26th of November we made sandwiches and stories that we shared with our parents. In the morning we learnt about healthy eating and we ate some jam, chocolate spred and cheese. Then we came back from play and we designed our sandwiches’. Jacob Dean

‘On Thursday the 26th of November lovely Whales Class planed and made their fabulous sand witches. They’ve also talked about a healthy diet so that their sand witches are not just tasty but healthy too! When their sandwiches, as yummy as the best food ever, are finished they will show them to their friendly, kind and happy parents’. Gabriel Jeffery

‘On Thursday the 26th of November Whales read the lighthouse keepers message. So we came in and learnt about how to have a healthy diet. Then we sorted food into their food groups and tried ingredients. After we created our design. In the afternoon we made the sandwiches and we ATE them’. Madilyn Parker

‘On the 26th November we made  sandwiches.When we got in we learnt about healthy foods and looked at their food groups.After break we did a design of our sandwiches.Next we made our sandwiches ready for our parents to come in. To make entertainment   we prepared our stories to read. Also we learnt to not make our sandwiches too full because when you eat it it will fall apart. We also learnt to make it look good,smell nice and make it a creative shape’. Kyra Sowe

‘Today Whales made the Lighthouses keepers lunch. Mr Grinling sent us a message because the pesky seagull took his lunch and he got angry so we made our own sandwiches for our parents to eat and we shared them at 2.30’. Ella Trueman

We all had a fantastic time!
