A Design and Technology expert came to Rathfern to help us make swings and slides that move. We assembled, joined and combined a range of materials and components to construct our objects.
We had to create a swing or a slide that was safe for Fiddly and Diddly (two fictional characters) to use. We found using the straws and caterpillar pipe cleaners quite fiddly to use, but we persevered with our creations. We really enjoyed testing out what we had made and reflected on our session by evaluating what we could do better next time. We cannot wait for our next DT workshop!
