Desk Tidies

The children began to use their skills as product developers in DT this afternoon; they were evaluating a range of different desk tidy options. They quickly identified the design strengths and weaknesses and began to think about how they would adopt and adapt some of their observations to make their own desk tidy.

The next part of the task is to collect as many suitable vessels at home that can be recycled to make the most effective desk tidy. We will be road-testing the desk tidies for a week and assessing their success.

We need small, clean items. Plastic bottles, toothpaste boxes or kitchen towel roll tubes are just a few examples. There are a few rules; non of the items must be glass, dirty or of an existing pencil tidy. Please could the children bring in any collected items next Thursday, 1st March in a named carrier bag.

Happy recycling!
