INVENTOR'S PROJECT DURING LOCKDOWN

During Lockdown, the children were challenged to think and learn about inventors. Britain is world famous for our inventions and inventors throughout history and the present day. We have analysed products such as the mobile telephone and then designed our own balloon powered vehicle.

PHOTOGRAPH PROJECT

With our improved cutting and gluing skills, we have been problem solving how to make a photograph frame to house a photo of ourselves. 

The best start in DT is to analyse how other frames have been made and to evaluate how successful they are doing the job they have been designed for. We have discussed what makes a design strong or weak, what materials are best, why certain materials are used and who is the frame designed for.

Next, we have cut and reinforced cardboard to make a frame following our own design. We were challenge to make it stand up with good stability.

"Say cheese!"

Improving our cutting and gluing skills

Now we are making faces in 3-d and challenging ourselves by cutting and gluing card as well as using unisnips.

We have used PVA glue for greater strength as we have mad our faces from egg boxes. Tomorrow is decoration time - how it is finished is another key importance to anything we design and make.
