Design and Technology

Friday 11 June 2021

This half term, we are starting our next topic which is all about Design and Technology.

During this topic, we will be exploring and evaluating a range of existing products, designing functional and appealing products based on given design criteria and then making the product by selecting from a range of tools and equipment to perform practical tasks (eg cutting, shaping, joining and finishing).

Throughout the topic, we will look at key questions. What is a structure? Which design is the best? How can we make it stronger? Is it fit for purpose?

Here is a list of some of the vocabulary that will be taught in the coming weeks.
