Class 4

Welcome to Class 4! 

We are a class of year 3 and 4 children.

We are taught by Mrs Taylor, Miss Vevers, Mr Ward & Mrs Cockton.

We hope you enjoy seeing all of our learning over the year and that you are as proud of our achievements as we are!

DT - Shell structures - Design and make an air raid shelter to protect a family of 6 during the Blitz that cannot be seen from enemy aircraft above.


Today we tested and evaluated our air raid shelters. Some were successful and others failed to make the grade.  I’m extremely proud of how each team worked together to build and reinforce their structure.

Design & Technology - We were given a brief of designing and making an air raid shelter for a family of 6 that cannot be seen from enemy aircraft above.  We have researched different types of shelters and looked at the positives and negatives of each one. We then made some prototypes out of a Lego and K-nex before making a structure for an Anderson shelter out of paper straws. We looked at reinforcing the structure so that the shelter would be strong.
