Designing a Party Bag

  • Tara Trevelen Loughborough University


This study took place in a reception class in a small, one form entry primary school in Penge. Due to the fact that the school has no on-site nursery, the children in the class have had very varied pre-school experiences, ranging from no pre-school experience at all to attending full-time at a school nursery elsewhere. There are currently 16 children in the class, all of whom had been in school for a maximum of eight weeks at the start of the unit of work titled ‘Designing and making a party bag’.
