Summer Term D&T

03 May 2012




Class 4JP Summer Term
Design Technology
DESIGN AND MAKE A VIKING HELMET
 


 
 
 
 
WE BEGAN BY CARRYING OUT SOME RESEARCH TO SEE WHAT VIKING HELMETS WERE LIKE.

 
 
MANY OF US THOUGHT THEY HAD HORNS HOWEVER WE FOUND OUT THAT THIS IS NOT HISTORICALLY TRUE!
 

  


ONCE WE HAD DESIGNED OUR HELMETS WE THEN STARTED THE MAKING PROCESS.


FIRST WE HAD TO MEASURE OUR HEADS ACCURETLY SO THAT OUR HELMETS WOULD FIT AND CREATED A HEADBAND OUT OF CARDBOARD.
 


WE THEN HAD TO BLOW UP A BALLOON AND FIT IT INSIDE OUR HEAD BAND TRYING HARD NOT TO POP IT!

WE THEN ATTACHED A MASK TO THE FRONT OF THE HELMET.
 


THEN CAME THE FUN PART… PAPER MACHE!


WE COVERED OUR STRUCTURE WITH 2 LAYERS OF PAPER MACHE BEFORE POPPPING THE BALLOON TO ADD THE FINAL LAYER.



WE HAD TO LET EACH LAYER DRY COMPLETELY SO THE STRUCTURE WOULD BE STRONG.

 


FINALLY WE PAINTED OUR HELMETS.
       

 
 
 
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF OUR FINISHED HELMETS?
