Delightful Decorations: Cutting Skills

SKU D12IL405002
Key Stage 1 Design & Technology Year 1 Year 2

What skills will we need to make a Christmas tree decoration? In this lesson, children focus on improving their cutting skills. They first discuss the safety aspects of using scissors, before putting their skills to the test by cutting straight, zigzag and wavy lines as accurately as they can. They then apply this skill in their independent activities, where they cut out and assemble parts of a Christmas-themed picture. Alternatively, children practise drawing round templates and cutting out a variety of shapes from fabric.

This downloadable lesson comes with a lesson plan, slideshow presentation and printable teaching resources.
