    What about designing a medal and then making one from fabic? (Design and Making elements and covering the textiles element so often forgotten.)
  2. We're designing and making a healthy meal fit for an athlete (pasta salad type thing.)

    I was going to suggest the medal and olympic torch as well, I did both with my Year 2 class.
  6. Mine really enjoyed designing their own Olympics kit - but we only did this on paper.
    We also designed Olympic logos - that's something they could potentially make out of material/felt etc.

    I was in Much Wenlock the other day, home of one of the mascots, and they obviously had a great many bits and bobs displayed in the village for the olympics. They had a torch made from bubble wrap that had been painted gold...looked fabulous and I'm going to get some of my class to do that.


    Dead cheap book above with amazingly brilliant ideas for art and DT, with maths, science and literacy links as well.
  8. thank you x
