Design and Technology – Gingerbread Houses

This term in design and technology, we have made gingerbread houses. We began the unit by learning about the origin of gingerbread and decorated gingerbread from the Tudors. We researched and created our own designs, before using templates to create a prototype. We then worked collaboratively and safely to follow a recipe, carefully measuring our ingredients. Once baked, we invited our parents into school to construct and beautifully decorate our gingerbread houses. Later, we evaluated our final product against our design criteria.
