In Matisse and Hockney we have been doing a D&T project. We have designed a bird feeder and created it. We chose if we wanted it hanging from a tree with string or stuck into the ground using a stick.
Please could you put them into the fridge over night then put it outside. Talk to your child about what worked well and what could be improved about the bird feeder. This will help us write our evaluation next week!
