Due in: Monday 2nd July 2018


 Design Technology Homework: To ensure you have designed your slippers and have a clear idea of what you want to make. Please use your design to think about what type of fabrics and materials you are going to use and bring them into school after the holidays. 

School has some materials for the children to use but as this is a design project we may not have the desired materials that the children wish to use. We have bought the wadding for the children to pad their slippers. Last year, children brought in old clothes/scarves to cut up and use.  Materials do not have to be from an upholstery shop and can be sourced cheaply.  Please also consider what material you are going to use for the sole so it is non-slip and hard-wearing.


Each Year 6 child is expected to read for half an hour each night and record how many pages read in their reading record.
