Ebony Class – Being Engineers

Miss Redwood has managed to get Ebony Class (and Holly Class) involved in a project run by James Dyson.

The project is helping us to understand what it means to be an engineer. We started our first session by sketching what an engineer might look like. We then found out what a engineer is actually like – quite a difference. We started to realise that engineers share nearly all of our learning values – making us perfect candidates for being engineers ourselves.

After we had learnt more about James Dyson and other engineers, we used a meta-cognition approach to plan how we would demonstrate our new learning. As always with pupils from Hazeldown – there were a wide range of creative approaches.

If you had to evaluate our outcomes – what would you say?
