What I really love about teaching is that it makes you try new things.
I am completely useless at 3D, my biggest success being a pot I made in the third year that had a little mouse sat on the top.
I think I knew that I had reached the pinnacle of my three dimensional career at that stage and so never really tried anything else of that ilk.
But one of the BTEC Units that I am teaching involves a small element of 3D and so I had to bite the bullet.
I have kept it very simple and just fooled around with some scraps of paper and a needle and thread.
They only took a few minutes to make ( which you can probably tell!) but I had great fun.
So over the half term holiday I am going to challenge my students to have a go!
