Designing and making air-raid shelters

Class 6 had great fun designing and making air-raid shelters as part of their DT, They had to think about the shape and strength of the shelter to withstand bombing. The children were also very inventive with their designs, some of them including lighthouses to link with our class book “Letters from the Lighthouse.” They have also been learning about electricity in science and were able to rig up a simple circuit to light a bulb in their lighthouse or shelter.
