During our Mill Green workshop, we learnt about the history of the mill and how flour is made at the mill. We also investigated objects which use wheels and gears. We then took part in the ‘Gear Challenge’. We worked in groups to make a set of gears using lids, card and pins. All the wheels had to turn at the same time, which we managed after a bit of adjusting!

In Design Technology, we have been patiently learning how to form different types of stitches in preparation for making our own reusable T-shirt bags. We have learned how to sew a running stitch, a backstitch and a blanket stitch. Can you spot them on our practice material?
