Anderson Shelters

Year 6 have been busy in D&T designing and constructing Anderson shelters, as part of their WW2 topic. The class researched Anderson shelters and decided on materials needed to make sturdy and practical models of the shelters.

The class used corrugated card, wooden sticks, paint and lots of masking tape to construct the shelters. In order to test the strength of the shelters, children used books piled on top of the models - they all survived.

The class added their own features, such as the Union Jack flag, picket fences and gardens.
