Class 8 put a range of skills to good use in order to create the wonderful Christmas chess set that can be seen below. The work involved the initial design of their pieces (the pupils did one design each) based on a Christmas theme and then the careful modelling of the design in a 3D drawing program (we used Tinkercad in this case although we have also used Sketch Up for similar purposes). It was important that the the chess pieces were in proportion and authentic so Class 8 decided to use the dimensions of a 'tournament' chess set. Finally the pupils need to save their design in a file for printing.
The finished chess set can be seen below - well done Class 8!
