Design and Technology - Mechanisms

In our D&T lessons, we have been focusing on developing mechanisms. Our task was to develop a fairground wheel that would move on an axle. We had to create a wheel, axle, axle holder and pods to hold the people in. We even added some decoration to our wheels.

Christingle Making - Friday 12th January

The Open the Book team came in to help us make a Christingle for the Church Service at St Giles Church. Christingle means 'Christ Child' and they are made from an orange decorated with red tape, sweets or dried fruit and a candle. Each of these different elements has a special meaning:

  • The orange symbolises the world.
  • The red ribbon shows God's love for the world and the blood of Jesus.
  • The sweets/dried fruit represents God's creation.
  • The four cocktail sticks can represent either the four seasons or the four corners of the worl.
  • The candle represents Jesus being the light of the world, bringing hope to those in darkness.
