Paper Engineering Workshop
Pop up books are always a favourite with young children – but how are they made? Pupils were able to explore the wonderfully creative world of paper engineering this term, benefiting from a series of fabulous workshops. Led by a professional artist Mr Pickford, the pupils had expert step by step instructions about a range of useful techniques. Pupils learnt a range of techniques including V-folds vertical risers, platforms and box layers. Once they've returned to school, Y3 pupils will learn opposite action techniques and box mechanisms. This half term, pupils will then use all of these techniques to create their own pop up book.
