The Year three topic this term is Ancient Egypt. Within Design Technology, pupils are designing and making necklaces (inspired by Ancient Egyptian art) for a summer ‘collection’ – Egyptian style is back in fashion after 5000 years!

This is a DT textiles unit, so the main feature on the necklaces will be rectangular shaped pieces of weaving. Pupils have also taken time to explore tassel and paper bead making - all three techniques will be featured on their necklaces. This week the children will be drawing, colouring and annotating their necklace designs; thinking about their end customers and considering where to place their weaving, tassels, and beads on their necklaces. Pupils also need to plan how to attach materials together and make their designs into wearable accessories. They will evaluate their products at the end of the project.

Please see some of the weaving in the gallery below:
