In DT, Year 6 have been designing chairs with the aim for them to be sold at John Lewis online.

Pupils were asked to design chairs appealing to one of the following customers:

  • Student 18 -21 years old. A multi-purpose chair (it is their only chair in their one-room accommodation)
  • A stylish chair for a young, style-conscience couple aged 25 -35
  • An office chair for a home worker.

We started the project by exploring strong structures and forces before experimenting with materials and joining techniques. Designs were evaluated and modified after their prototype was made. The final chairs were finished and evaluated this week. As you can see, pupils have made lovely cushions from Sanderson and Liberty print fabrics. The pupils have priced their chairs between £20 and £500. If you would like to purchase a full size chair, please enquire at the school………..or check out the John Lewis website in the Spring. You never know! Well done year 6.
