We have worked really hard on planning and making our careers hub building prototypes...and they are now finished! After plenty of discussing, planning, cutting and gluing, our finished products are complete. We are so pleased with how they have turned out.

The next stage of our Design & Technology project was to start making our prototypes out of cardboard! We were shown how to safely use a craft knife so that we could accurately cut out the nets for our buildings (some of us looked a little nervous at the prospect of doing our own cutting!)

We were lucky enough to get the opportunity to question Miss Tumelty, the SENCo at DACA, about inclusion and accessibility. We wrote questions that would allow us to find out about how DACA supports children and young people who have additional needs.

We are working in groups (named after architects!) to design and make a prototype of the careers hub building. After looking at pictures of the chosen architect's work, we designed our own building! We have done three designs and will choose one of them to make into a cardboard prototype with Miss Morris from DACA.

Career Related Learning Module Visitor - Dave Scholes

Dave Scholes came in to speak to us about his career so far...he has done a lot of things and owns his own business! We wrote good quality questions that would help us to learn the most interesting information about Dave's career.

Architect Research! We have researched a variety of architects in preparation for our Career Related Learning Design & Technology project.

This half term, Miss Morris from DACA is doing a Design & Technology project with us for our Career Related Learning Module. To start the project, ladies from Eric Wright Construction Group came and helped us to carry out the Tetrahedron Challenge...and we loved it! We worked really well as a team and were really happy with the results.
