Mastering Our Skills
We revisited the skills that we needed to make our marble runs in Autumn 2, we found easier ways to measure the runs using a ruler and quicker ways to make holes in the card with scissors!
In our Autumn term DT project we made our very own Marble runs. We started our project by looking at existing marble runs, looking at what they are made out of and what we liked & disliked. Before we began making our marble runs, we completed our focused practical tasks which involved sticking together card, cutting a hole in card and creating a strip of paper for the runs. These were all the things we needed to practise in order to make our Marble Run.
We designed our own marble run and began to make it, we used card and cardboard boxes for the base. We loved making our marble runs and playing with them with our friends. After we had made them we evaluated them looking at what was good and what we would improve.
