Upper KS2

Year 5 taste tested a variety of different supermarket pretzel varieties.  We analysed them using sensory descriptors.  This helped us to then plan out what we wanted our own pretzel snack to look and taste like.  We followed a recipe to create our own pretzels and finally evaluated our finished products.  We all agreed they were delicious and so fresh!

Year 5 had a fantastic visit from Junior Stem Lego. We built programmable monkeys out of Lego and then after building them we had to use different algorithms to programme them to move, speak and play different songs.  We then learned how to use sensors to control them and get them to perform different actions.

In Year 5 our DT project this term has been to design and make a pouch for the character of Zoe in our class text 'Floodland'.  Zoe has a precious compass that she carries around with her and so our pouches are to hold this compass.  We started by analysing different types of bags, exploring the different fastenings, construction techniques and materials used.  We considered how designers have to think about the purpose of their design, who it is for and what it will be used for.  We have enjoyed practising our sewing techniques on paper first before developing our technique by sewing our pouches.  We are looking forward to adding the fastenings of our choice and finishing touches.

KS2 have been lucky to be able to take part in some DT work around the 'Design Process Box'.  This was sent to us by the James Dyson Foundation and allows us to explore the job of a design engineer and to become design engineers ourselves following the same processes they use in their day to day jobs.  Today we learned all about the characteristics that a design engineer shows.  We knew patience and perseverance would be some of these traits, but we were surprised that frustration and wrong thinking are also considered helpful characteristics!  We watched some videos where design engineers explained their job and it was interesting to find out about their pathway into this career.  

We made pretzels! We looked at savoury products with a sweet twist too! We taste tested first. We designed, baked and made our own! Delicious!

UKS2 have had a busy DT focus week making a Roman catapult.  We started by exploring how the mechanism of a catapult works and worked together with a group to create a prototype.  We then designed our own catapult and finally created it using a whole host of technical skills.  We can't wait to try them out, before evaluating our end product.

Fun Food Chef! What a fantastic day we had cooking!
