DT Project - Moving nursery rhymes


DT Project - Moving nursery rhymes For our DT project year 1 made moving pictures. The children in year 1 looked at different ways to make a moving picture and used split pins to achieve this. The each chose a nursery rhyme they wanted to do. They then drew a picture and decided what part they wanted to move. The used their DT skills to measure, cut, stick and carefully pierce through the split pins and created some fantastic moving pictures.

Here is a short video of what we did:

Year 1



Father Christmas came to Ladbrooke!

Today was a very exciting day for Ladbrooke School.  Father Christmas came to visit all the children. Year 1 were very excited to see him and even more excited to find out they were all on his ‘nice’ list!

‘It was amazing, we got a present!’ Ege

‘I liked seeing my mummy as an elf’ Olivia

‘I liked guessing the names of all the reindeers’ James

This was not the only exciting news for Year 1 today. It was also our special treat day for filling up all our class marble jar. We had an end of term Christmas party! The children got to decorate their own hats, and had a STEM challenge where they had to work in groups to make and decorate a festive hat.

We also played a few more party games and had the opportunity to win some prizes.

Well done for working hard this term Year 1!
