Welcome to the Design & Technology page of our Distance Learning!


This part of the website is full of fun and creative challenges for you to try at home. 



Ping Pong Popper - have fun with ping pong or other small balls.

Tube Trotter - use cardboard tubes to make puppets. Follow this design or make your own.


All of the designs can be made with everyday items from your home and many use recycled materials.  I’ve started to keep a collection of things that I think might be useful e.g. cereal packets, coloured foil wrappers (from Easter eggs!), cardboard tubes, tissue paper, odd pieces of wrapping paper and bubble wrap.


Keep coming back to the DT page as I will be posting new ideas all the time.


You can send photos of anything that you make to me at


Have fun being creative!
