PHOTOGRAPH PROJECT Year 3/4
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.
CUTTING AND ATTACHING
Year 3 and 4 have been improving our cutting and gluing skills by making expressive faces. We also used brass split pins to bring in an element of movement. We will now try something more challenging by cutting tougher card to make a 3-d face. We will also aim to improve or decorations skills which is another key element to Design and Technology.
Improving our cutting and gluing skills in Year 3/4
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.
In preparation for making our beanstalk linked to our story "Jack and the Beanstalk" KS1 have investigated different fastenings to attach two pieces of paper together. We used glue, paper clips, treasury tags and split pins.
