Anglo-Saxon village!

In DT, we have designed, built, tested and evaluated our own model houses.  First, we looked at the design of Anglo-Saxon and modern houses.  We built different shape structures using toothpicks and worked out which ones were sturdy.  Then, we designed our own models and built them.  We even tried weaving, just like the Saxons! Finally, we created a village in the nature area and left it overnight.  Amazingly, the houses survived!
