Year 6 Design & Technology Shang Villages

Today, as out DT challenge, we built a Shang village. We split into ‘family’ groups and designed our houses. We had a budget of 20 Cowry shells, which we had to use to buy the materials we needed to make our houses.

Once the ‘Nobles’ had approved our design we had to buy our materials and build our hut.

We got very mucky mixing up the clay, soil and straw to make the walls. It felt great.

Then we attached the poles and made the roof using clay and straw.

After this, we made some villagers and some furniture!
