Year 1 Long Term Plan 2023/4

Autumn 1

What makes the best curtain?

Children will look at common materials and the everyday items they can be made into.

They will describe the properties of these materials and use their knowledge from investigations to make design choices for a curtain/blind.

The children will develop a range of skills to embellish their curtain which includes printing and tie-dying.

From evaluations of their prototyping the children will design and make a panel for the curtain/blind.


Project outcomes:

  • Make a class curtain/blind which keeps out the light
